Lemon with sugar

I google "lemon and sugar" in English and I see tips on making face/body scrubs.
It seems weird because I'm Russian and this phrase sounds like food to me.

I google "lemon and sugar" in Russian. Totally different picture. We eat this.

In my childhood there was no remedy better if you caught a flu. Search the fridge, kid, you'll see couple of these jars with layers of lemon sealed with sugar.

Even if you didn't have the flu you were allowed to eat sweet lemons from the jar with hot tea after dinner. In the name of "precautions" for parents, because of the sweetness, for you.

I don't know if people make lemon and sugar anymore. I personally don't.

But yum.
