Ingredients

1 cup sugar

6 tablespoons honey

2 tablespoons glucose

8 tablespoons brewed tea

Non-stick cooking spray

Lollipop molds

Lemon rinds

Mint leaves

Lollipop sticks

Directions

  1. Combine the sugar, honey, glucose and brewed tea in a small saucepan fitted with a candy thermometer and cook on high heat. While cooking the candy syrup, occasionally wash down the pan sides using a clean brush dipped in water to prevent crystallization. Without stirring, cook until mixture reaches 310 degrees or hard crack on the candy thermometer.
  2. Spray lollipop molds lightly with non-stick cooking spray. Place lemon rinds and mint leaves in each section. Place lollipop sticks into mold. Remove the pot from the heat and dip it into an ice bath for 15 seconds to stop the cooking. Remove the pot from the ice bath. To avoid air bubbles, swirl hot candy syrup in both directions, being careful not to over mix. Pour the syrup into the molds 2/3 of the way full and cool at least 20 minutes. Remove from molds.
