This old fashioned Lemonade Recipe is what I use when the days are warm and the work is underway. This is a great, thirst quenching, pick-me-up and is not too sweet.
It seems to me Americans used to drink much more lemonade at home than they do today.
I suppose the reason is that there are so many other
prepared beverages available at the grocery store.
After trying many of them, my family and I returned to
making our own lemonade. My family really appreciates having homemade lemonade,
especially during the summer months.
Preparation time: 15 minutes. Makes 15 eight ounce servings.
Note: The sugar and water does not have to be boiled but the quality of the lemonade is improved if you boil them in a pan for 2 minutes, chill and then add the lemon juice. Otherwise,
Enjoy your lemonade and the company of those you share it with!
