READY IN: 30mins
YIELD: 60 pieces




  • Soften the gelatin in the cold water.
  • Combine the sugar, salt and hot water in a saucepan; heat to boiling, stirring constantly.
  • Stir in the softened gelatin; turn the heat down and simmer, without stirring, for 20 minutes.
  • 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.
  • Let stand 3 minutes.
  • Strain the mixture into a 8 x 4-inch loaf pan which has been rinsed with cold water.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Cut into 1-inch squares.
  • Roll in confectioners' sugar to coat. Store in one layer in a tightly covered container at room temperature.
  • The candies will stay moist for about 2 weeks.
