Poach lemon into cubes:

  • Remove the corners of the lemon and cut into 8 pieces; remove any excess membrane and seeds. There should be 450 grams left once cut.
  • Blanch the lemons (450 grams): cover in a pot of cold water, bring to the boil and strain. Repeat this operation 2 times.
  • Cover the lemons with 900 grams of sugar and 900 grams of water. Bring to the boil and cook for 4 to 5 hours slowly between 85 and 90 degrees.
  • Strain and reserve the syrup, which we will cook at 103 degrees, let it cool and cover the lemons that we had poached with the result.

Inside of the lemon:

  • Heat the lemon juice and water. Mix the sugar and the agar agar.
  • Add to the hot liquid, stirring with a whisk, bring to the boil and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and cool completely.
  • Cut the poached lemons into cubes.
  • Leave the flesh of the two to three lemons supreme and mash.
  • Set aside.
  • Pass the cooled jam through the blender a couple of times and add the poached lemon cubes, supreme lemons, citrus caviar and mint.
  • Put all this in a silicone mould in the shape of a half sphere and freeze completely.
  • Unmould and join two pieces into a single sphere that we will keep frozen.

We have our lemon core.
