This tastes the same or better than storebought. I usually decrease the sugar in recipes 25%, so did that here. Because of that, I also halved the lemon. It took an hour before this became syrupy. It was closer to 3/4 cup than one. I let it cool 30 minutes before refrigerating. Can't wait to try it in a variety of recipes!

I only gave this recipe 3 stars because, it never really got thick even after simmering for 30 minutes. I boiled it for an additional 10 but got only a thin syrup which was fine since I was using this in a salad dressing. The flavor was wonderful though. I will make this again.
