      I made this to use as called for, in your Lemon Jello Fluff Pie, but I don't really know why it was needed, instead of just grated lemon zest, without the added sugar. Perhaps this is supposed to be lemon rind STRIPS, sliced not grated, cooked to soften them?

      This turned out just like you said! I can see where this would be good in a cake frosting. Thanks for posting! Made for the 3 Chefs event.
