Fresh Lemonade

Fresh Lemonade. Mmmmm.....it's almost better than a glass of sweet tea!

They say that in Texas there are four seasons. Almost summer, summer, still summer and Deer Season. LOL You can't have any summer season without Lemonade and there is nothing like fresh, homemade Lemonade.

Lemonade Concentrate

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar (you could use splenda, I did)
  • 2 cups lemon juice (approximately 9 good size lemons)

More or less lemon depending on how sour/sweet you like it. We don't like it "puckering" sour, but we don't like it to be overly sweet either.

Bring the water and sugar to a boil. Boil until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat.

Pour your lemon juice into a quart jar.

Once the water/sugar syrup has cooled a little, pour it into the jar with the lemon juice.

You can freeze this or just put it in the fridge for use within a couple of days.

To make Lemonade:

Add enough water to lemonade concentrate to make 2 quarts.
