    Montana Heart Song's Note:

    Originally I made this recipe to use in a lemon upside down cake and from there used a standard sweet canning syrup.The sweet & sour syrup can be used as a base, then soy sauce/ginger or any other spice added, thickened for oriental dishes. The lemon slices can be used as garnish, drinks, cakes, breads, rind can also be used. This recipe is multiple use.I have used the slices to decorate cakes.

      I made this today and it is so good.I can eat it just like candy. I got this great deal on Lemons and did'nt care for the salt method.I reduced it considerably and the red hots didn't work for me.But it's a keeper.Thanks for posting it.
