This not too sweet, not too sour, freshly squeezed lemonade is a great way to quench a summers day thirst!!

"Have a lemon tree, too many to keep on hand. Made a double batch and added an extra cup of sugar (actually used a total of 3 cups of Splenda for my double batch instead of sugar). Did not have to heat the water"

Servings  

Preparation

Always wash your fruit before preparing.

Heat 2 cups of water in microwave or sauce pan and pour in sugar, stir until dissolved. Set aside.

Cut each lemon in half and use either a lemon squeeze or a juicer until you collect 2 cups (16 ounces) of lemon juice and pulp. Remove any seeds.

Pour the prepared sugar water, lemon juice, and remaining water into a 2 quart pitcher and stir.

Serve over ice and garnish with a lemon slice.

Notes

Heating the water before stirring in the sugar helps the sugar dissolve easier!!

You can use the lemons for zest in other dishes!!

2 cups = 16 fluid ounces!!

A citrus juicer works great!! (no need to squeeze)

Cutting a slot half way through your lemon garnish makes for a better looking garnish!!

I followed the recipe to a t and for me personally it ended up too bitter so i had to add more water and sugar, still very good lemonade though :]
