Homemade Lemonade

1 Comment

Is there anything more refreshing than a glass of fresh Lemonade on a hot summer day?  My children are always asking me to pick up lemons so they can make lemonade.  After seeing what is added to a purchased lemonade in preservatives and flavorings and dyes, I prefer to know what is in this simple enough to make beverage.

Homemade Lemonade

Serves 6

  • 6 large fresh lemons, squeezed (yields approximately 1 cup lemon juice)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 6 cups water

Squeeze the lemons of their juice to make one cup of lemon juice.  Add 1 cup sugar and 6 cups of water. Stir.  Chill or add ice cubes and enjoy immediately!

I am a home school mom of three wonderful kids. I have been married for over 20 years and am still in love. I love to cook, as a young child I enjoyed spending time with my mom in the kitchen and that love has grown into a passion. I started this blog to share my favorite recipes with friends and family and have enjoyed seeing it grow beyond those boundaries.
