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?
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
