Hello my lovelies,
I’ve had a hankering recently for some sweet yet sharp and icy cold homemade lemonade. You know, the kind that makes you sigh in satisfaction as you lazily watch the roses in your garden bob their heads in the breeze?
That’s what we made today and it is delicious.
First you need 6 unwaxed lemons chopped into quarters. Then add 280g of sugar to your food processor along with with 500ml of cold water. Toss in the lemons gently.
Blend for about 5 minutes. Next lay a large bowl into your sink with a fine sieve over it and pour over the lemon mix.
Now, push all the lemon pulpy mix with a wooden spoon to squeeze out as much juice as possible.
Throw the lemon pulp in the bin and remove the sieve. Then add 1.5 litres of cold water to the bowl of lemonade and mix.
Pour into a jug with slices of lemon and refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight. Of course, you could just pour it over ice but I didn’t have any.
We’re having ours tonight with dough balls, homemade pizza and salad.
I can’t wait.
