    mama_b's Note:

    Not as sickly sweet as the traditional candy, but still wonderfully lemony. Use a regular lemon and an orange if Meyer lemons aren't available.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Soften the gelatin in the cold water.
    2. 2
      Combine the sugar, salt and hot water in a saucepan; heat to boiling, stirring constantly.
    3. 3
      Stir in the softened gelatin; turn the heat down and simmer, without stirring, for 20 minutes.
    4. 4
      Remove from the heat and stir in the grated rind and lemon juice, and a little yellow food coloring to tint the mixture, if desired.
    5. 5
      Let stand 3 minutes.
    6. 6
      Strain the mixture into a 8 x 4-inch loaf pan which has been rinsed with cold water.
    7. 7
      Let stand without disturbing until slightly jellied (to prevent filming the sides of the pan); then refrigerate overnight. Loosen around the sides of the pan with a wet spatula.
    8. 8
      Slip the spatula down one end and underneath the jellied mixture, then pull it out of the pan with your hands onto a surface liberally dusted with confectioner's sugar.
    9. 9
      Cut into 1-inch squares.
    10. 10
      Roll in confectioners' sugar to coat. Store in one layer in a tightly covered container at room temperature.
    11. 11
      The candies will stay moist for about 2 weeks.
