We had the trees at our house trimmed this week and they bagged up 10 HUGE bags of lemons, so I thought what better time to share one of my favorite lemon recipes. And if you’re close to Ambassador, please stop by for a bag of lemons!
Fresh Lemonade Base
By Jani Joy Williamson
5 cups water
2 ½ cups sugar
1 teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel
2 ½ cups lemon juice
In a saucepan, heat and stir water and sugar over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat and cool 20 minutes. Add lemon peel and lemon juice to sugar mixture. Pour into a jar, cover and refrigerate up to a week.
For each glass of lemonade, combine equal parts lemonade base and water in ice filled glasses. Stir.
Makes 16 (8 ounce) servings.
(You can also FREEZE batches of this lemonade base and just add the extra water when it thaws!)
