One Lovely Luscious Lemon

Hello Friends!

I bought myself a beautiful lemon yesterday.  I love to put a fresh slice in my water, so pretty and tasty.  Don’t you just love fresh lemons?  They’re bright and cheerful.  They look great in a fruit bowl.  They make scrumptious lemon meringue pies.  They make delicious lemon bars.  They make the best homemade lemonade.   Why not buy a few today? 

Homemade Lemonade


Serve this over crushed ice with a slice of lemon; and, you have summertime anytime!


You can use fresh squeezed lemon juice or bottled lemon juice. Fresh sliced lemons floating in the pitcher add a nice touch.

For 2 quarts:

1 cup lemon juice

1 cup sugar

6 cups water

For 1 gallon:

2 cups of lemon juice

2 cups of sugar

12 cups of water

Bring the lemon juice and sugar to a boil over medium-high heat. This causes the sugar to completely dissolve. Then pour the lemon sugar mixture into a pitcher which already has cold water in it. That way you won’t break your pitcher!

Adjust ingredients to your sweet tart preferences.

Enjoy and God bless!


Happy at Home

  1. I love lemon in any way shape or form! My sister’s late mother in law used to make a special syrup to use for making lemonade. She kept it in the fridge and then you could have a glass of lemonade any time you wanted one. It was really gread! It was especially wonderful mixed with sparkling water with a twist of lemon floating on top. Now you have done it, I must make lemonade!


  2. I always love visiting a friend of mine who always put sliced lemon in her water when I visited her. I read somewhere that Laura Ingalls Wilder (she was married at the time) would always serve lemonade to her guests. When she had men working on her house, she would go out and bring them lemonade. In her recipe, instead of regular sugar, she uses powdered sugar. The pure kind (not kind with cornstarch added). 🙂 She said it was the best lemonade.
