Raw Canned Lemons

Photo 1 _ Nathashas Kitchen


  • 8 lemons (for 3 pint size jars)
  • 2-3 cups cane sugar
  • 3 pint size glass jars


  1. Start by washing your jars with soap and water, then fill each jar ⅓ with boiling hot water and swirl it around, then drain and repeat. Or, you can boil the jars in a large pot for 5 minutes or run them through your dish washer. Do the same with the lids.
  2. Wash your lemons thoroughly using a sponge or dish brush, then slice them into rings or half circles.
  3. Place the lemon slices into a jar (about ½ lemon at a time) covering the lemon slices with at least 3 Tbsp sugar.
  4. Repeat layers of lemon and sugar till you get to the top of the jar, pressing down the lemons as you go.
  5. Once filled to the top with lemons add some more sugar and cover with the lid and refrigerate. The sugar will turn into a syrup as it stands in the fridge, the syrup is great to use in tea as well as the lemons, this can also be eaten as a sour treat.

This recipe can be refrigerated up to 1 month
