Emerald Of A Lemon-Lime Fruit Gem: Best Recipe (For All) In Stone.

Our Best Recipe for Orange, Grapefruit, Lemon-Lime, and Lemon or Lime Fruit Gems is HERE.  Like an Emerald, a discovery was made, then cut and polished for optimum consistency and flavor.  The pictured were made with Lemon and Lime Juice and Zest.  All flavors are superb.

Homemade Fruit Gem Ingredients: 1 Cup of Corn Syrup, 1 Cup of Sugar, Zest of 1 (Orange, Grapefruit, Lemon and/or Lime), 3/4 Cup of Fresh Squeezed Juice (Orange, Grapefruit, Lemon and/or Lime), 7 Tbsps. of Fruit Pectin, 1/4 Tsp. of Baking Soda, and Food Coloring (optional to improve color).  Recipe was fine-tuned after earlier posting and best measurements are noted herein, and amended in this post, for best clarity and color, though the previous variation worked well too.  Step-by-Step instructions (and same recipe) are linked here.  Irish eyes smiled this day — Should Lemon-Lime become the New March Madness?

    Sonia: It’s powdered. Sorry the links are broken. I will try to fix them.
