I think since I started blogging and more and more each day I have a desire to want to learn how to make things from scratch. Each and every day your blogs inspire me to get back to the basics of food.
So I made my first lemonade from scratch, easy, refreshing and will do again for sure. I did find it needed a lot of sugar though so I asked folks on facebook for tips see below you guys are wonderful love learning from you all. It makes a great treat on a summer day and is a great source of vitamin C.
- about 10 lemons, squeezed to get juice
- desired amount of demerara (brown) sugar about 6 tablespoons
- about 3-4 cups of water to make a jug and ice
- 5-6 mint leaves
- squeeze the lemons
- add the water, mint and sugar and ice and serve
Next time I will add another sweeter fruit like Tanvi suggested maybe oranges :-)
Who makes lemonade and do you have any recipes to share?
