A nice little post from last year on how to make your own lemonade. Enjoy!

Liz Noonan

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.

Enjoy!

I also have some uses for the lemon zest…
