There is nothing more refreshing on a hot summer day than a nice cool glass of lemonade. Unfortunately most of the lemonade that you get at the store is full of High Fructose Corn Syrup. Here’s a recipe that I use often, and Sexy usually will come home with a bag of organic lemons and a smile to entice me to make more.
Homemade Lemonade Recipe
(makes 1 quart)
1 cup sugar (I use raw sugar or sucanat, but any sugar will do)
1.5 cups boiling water
3 large organic lemons
more filtered water to fill container
Boil 1.5 cups of water in a saucepan.when the water is fully boiling, pour in 1 cup of sugar, and stir occassionally ntil fully dissolved. Remove from heat when it’s all dissolved to let cool. While cooling cut 3 thin slices of lemon, and then squeeze the juice from 3 large organic lemons and pour juice and slices into a 1 quart container. Then pour sugar water into the same container and fill the rest of the container with more filtered water. Done!
Making the sugar water (or liquid sugar) helps the sugar to dissolve nicely instead of adding it cold and having it sink to the bottom. This also saves calories because you won’t need to add any extra sugar.
