Have you ever had homemade lemonade? It is absolutely one of the most delicious, delightful beverages I have ever tasted. I decided to make some on a whim, using my grandmothers cookbook as a guide.
You will need, 6 lemons, one cup sugar and two cups water.
Juice the lemons. I did this over a strainer so I could easily remove the seeds.
Use a spatula to garner the juice from the pulp.
Boil 2 cups water, with one cup sugar, for 5 minutes.
Add the lemon juice to your sugar/water mixture (technically now a syrup) and allow to cool, about 20 minutes.
In a 2 quart container, add half cool water and half the lemon mix. Adjust to taste – I had some left over I put aside because I don’t care for things too sweet or strong tasting.
I also have some uses for the lemon zest and rind, which I will share with you all later.
Do you make your own lemonade? Or would you make it, knowing how simple it is?
