Place the sliced lemons into a large bowl, cover with water and let it marinate for 24 hours.
After this time has passed, take the lemons off the water and place them in a large pot. Add the
Granulated Sugar (4 cups)
Water (2 1/2 cups)
Bring to a simmer and cook on very low heat, stirring frequently for a couple of hours. As lemons are very high in natural pectine, the jam will thicken very fast, so keep an eye on it and stir as much as you can to avoid the jam to stick to the pot.
When ready, immediately divide the jam into sterilized jars, close them tight with a lid and place the jars upside down covered with a towel until completely cooled. Store the jars in a dry and cool place, which would allow them to last for months.
