Happy Father’s Day! Charlie has been working on the car all day long with his friend, Trey….hopefully they can get the car working again! I thought I would make some homemade lemonade to make the work go by a little quicker 🙂
This recipe is a family recipe, one of many that my mom taught me years ago. It’s a very easy recipe, but it just takes time to let everything cool. Refreshing and perfect for a hot summer afternoon!
And yes, that is the view I see every day….pretty sweet, huh? 🙂
YIELD: 2 quarts plus a little extra
TIME: 2 hours 30 minutes
2 cups sugar
1 cup water
rind from 2 lemons
juice from 5-6 lemons
2 quarts cold water
Heat sugar, water, and lemon rind until boiling, and boil for 5 minutes. Let cool, and add the lemon juice. Strain into a small bowl, and pour syrup into a large pitcher. Pour in enough water until consistency is reached (I tend to like my lemonade less watery, but that’s just me).
Hope y’all enjoy!
