Instructions
  1. Juice and zest the lemon with a fine grater.
  2. Measure the water and sugar into a saucepan over a medium low heat.
  3. Heat, stirring, until the sugar dissolves.
  4. Add the lemon zest and bring to a rolling boil. If you have a candy thermometer, it should read 250 Fahrenheit.
  5. Remove the saucepan from the heat. Add the lemon juice, honey, and food coloring if desired. Stir together.
  6. Return to the heat until the mixture comes to another boil.
  7. Strain out the lemon rind (or leave it in as you like). Pour the candy mixture onto a lightly greased baking tray.
  8. Allow it to cool for a few minutes, just until it's cool enough to touch.
  9. Use a spoon or clean fingers and pull out small pieces one at a time. Roll into a ball and dust with icing sugar.
