  5. Bring the mixture to a boil, and then add the second amount of glucose syrup. Add the second amount of sugar.
  6. Cook the mixture to 107°C/225°F. Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the Meyer lemon juice until a homogenous mass is achieved.
  7. Pour the pâte de fruit into the prepared frame. Let it set for a few minutes, and then sprinkle the entire surface with superfine sugar.
