So, armed with a bagful of lemons, I decided that given the gorgeously hot weather, I should tackle my goal to make homemade lemonade. And I am so glad I did. It was SO easy, took about ten minutes to make and was absolutely yum!
One cup lemon juice (it took me 6 lemons to get one cup)
One cup caster sugar
One cup boiling water
A further three glasses of cold water to dilute.
|Tasting lemon for the first time = first class entertainment... especially when she keeps asking for more!|
Step two: Put the boiling water and sugar into a saucepan and create a syrup by dissolving the sugar.
Step three: Once the sugar is dissolved, add the lemon juice.
Step four: Dilute with 3-4 glasses of cold water
Step five: Put in the fridge to chill and serve with lemon slices!
Within 24 hours of the lemonade being made, it was all gone! I will DEFINITELY be making it again... Lots! Especially if this weather keeps up!
Why not give it a go? Nothing quite so refreshing as a glass of ice-cold, home-squeezed lemonade!
