We didn't get to sample it at our last FEAST, but here is the recipe for lemonade. It is really easy, and is great in summer especially. Add cold water, or to make it extra yum, add sparkling mineral water.
1.5 cups white sugar
Place the sugar and 1.5 cups of water in a small saucepan. Finely grate the zest of two of the lemons and add this to the saucepan. Bring the mixture to the boil, stirring constantly. Simmer for 5 minutes, or until the sugar has dissolved.
Squeeze the juice of all 6 of the lemons and add to the saucepan. Allow to cool.
Strain the mixture into a bottle. Seal and store in the fridge for up to 1 week.
Dilute as required.
Makes 3 cups concentrated syrup.
