How do you make lemonade with just the following ingredients?!
No syrup needed. Juice the lemon: roll lemon firmly on countertop for a bit, slice in half, squeeze juice out. add water, and sugar to taste. Stir. Drink. Yum.
2 1/2 cups sugar
10 cups fresh cold water
Peel the rinds from the lemons and cut them into 2 inch slices. Set the lemons aside.
Place the rinds in a bowl and sprinkle the sugar over them. Let this stand for 1 hour, so that the sugar begins to soak up the oils from the lemons.
Bring water to the boil in a covered saucepan and then pour the hot water over the sugared lemon rinds. Allow this mixture to cool for 20 minutes and then remove the rinds.
Squeeze the lemons into another bowl. Pour the juice through a strainer into the sugar mixture. Stir well, pour into a jug and put into the fridge. Serve over ice
Juice your lemons, add your water and then add a cup of sugar at a time, stir it in and taste til its as sweet as you would like it. Not rocket science.
