FRESH SQUEEZED LEMONADE
I am spring cleaning and getting ready to have a rummage. It is amazing how much stuff you collect when you have kids; I can't wait to get rid of it! So while I am busy with the rummage my daughter is going to have a lemonade stand (her first business venture...I am raising a little entrepreneur).
I got this recipe from a chocolate shop I worked at one summer during the Sturgis Bike Rally in the Black Hills of South Dakota. The big burly bikers couldn't get enough fresh squeezed lemonade and fudge!
Fresh Squeezed Lemonade
1 1/4 cup lemon juice, about 7 lemons
1 1/2 cup sugar
6-8 cups cold water, plus 2 cups
In a saucepan combine the 2 cups of water and the sugar. Bring to a boil and stir until sugar is dissolved. Let cool.
Meanwhile, squeeze the lemons...
letting the juice fall into a bowl.
Remove the seeds but leave the pulp.
Add the sugar/water mixture, lemon juice and 6-8 cups of water in a pitcher. Mix well and chill. Serve over ice. (I was out...I hate it when that happens).
Note: The less water you use the more sugary and tart the lemonade will be.
A hawk in Georgia hunting a squirrel and a crow...maybe me too, by the look in his eyes! The squirrel was lucky; the crow, not so lucky.
