I ran out of the shop brought lemon honey today and I thought i'It's time to try making it' This recipe is so brilliant!!!!! it't made 2 medium sized jars and a wee bit left over to test of course. Next time I may strain it before putting into jars... but other than that, tastes better than shop brought. I'm making it agin for gifts.

Hi Eden, this recipe is expected to last around 3 to 4 weeks, but it needs to be refrigerated. Thanks!

I Made this last night, A suggestion would be to simply use a juice machine to prices the lemons.I just put the lemons in whole into the machine. Made an end product which was of an even and smooth consistency. Served up the morning after to the kids, they loved it. Fast to make also.
