Who’s coming over for some lemonade? April 19, 2008

Filed under: Food — mothersandothers @ 5:28 am

I recently came into a whole host of lovely lemons

and the mint is taking over

so come join us for some lemonade!!

Or make your own:


1 C. Sugar

1 C. Water

Juice of 6 lemons

Take the peel from one of the squeezed lemons and cut it into strips


In a small sauce pan bring sugar and water to a boil, add strips of peel and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, cool to room temperature (or close if you’re impatient like me), and strain out the peel. To a 2 quart pitcher add lemon juice and 1/2 c. of the syrup and 5 c. of water. Stir, taste, adjust ratio of water and syrup. Serve over ice and mint.
