Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 8 envelopes gelatin
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 2 tablespoons grated lime zest
  • 2 tablespoons grated lemon zest

Directions

In small saucepan, combine 1/2 cup of water, gelatin, lime juice, and lemon juice. Set aside.

In heavy small saucepan, place over medium heat, combine remaining 3/4 cup of water and 1 cup sugar and stir until sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil, cover and cook for 3 minutes. Remove lid and place candy thermometer on side of pan and cook until it reaches 300 degrees F.
