Good Evening one and all..
How you all doing?
Another lovely day here..
We had some rain through the night to water the plants and then sunny again today..
This has been such a lovely Summer here by the Bay of Fundy..
I posted last night about a lemon drink that we love and my sweet friend Sue thought she would like the recipe...
So.. here goes..
In a medium size pot combine 3 cups of sugar and 2 cups of water...
Bring this to a boil and boil for 5 minutes..
In the meantime squeeze lemons to get 1 cup of lemon juice..
My Mom brought me down a huge lemon and I squeezed over 1/2 cup out of it.. Then I just added another 1/2 cup of bottled lemon juice to equal 1 cup..
When the mixture has boiled for 5 minutes..
Add the 1 cup of lemon juice ...
And 2 Tablespoons of lemon zest...
Stir well and store in a sterilized quart mason jar...
Cover and keep refrigerated...
Fill glass about 1/4 full of syrup ..
Add ice and cold water to top..
You may add a lemon slice and cherry if desired..
You can add cold sparkling water instead of regular water or a bit of Sprite for fizz..
Let me know if you try it..
It is so nice to have all ready in the fridge for unexpected company or just to enjoy out on the deck after supper..
Hope you are all having a great week..
Old Home Week is winding down..
A big parade on Saturday..
Our kids love that..
A little lemon colored flowers in an old canning pot on our stoop..
A lad was in the shop today and I called it a stoop instead of a deck and he kinda looked at me funny..
Yeah, I am from the back woods.. grin...
Well, take care dear ladies..
Talk to you all soon..
