I wrote about an easy method of making freshly squeezed lemonade before. But, if you are like me, nothing beats real photographs for understanding! So I'm reprinting the recipe with pictures this time!
2 cups sugar
1 gallon water
Cut two of the lemons into eighths.
Place in the blender. Cover with water.
Blend quickly but don't puree. There should still be small chunks of lemon remaining.
Set a gallon pitcher in the sink with your colander over it. Pour the lemon mixture into the colander.
Run water through the lemons and squeeze well. Do the same with the remaining two lemons.
Keep running water through the lemons until you have one gallon.
Add sugar. Stir well, cool and serve!
You can also not add as much water, freeze until needed, then thaw and add the remaining water. My mom made many gallons of this lemonade for our July wedding!
Somehow, I think lemonade tastes better when poured and served in glass! Don't you? This jug is a old milk jug from my grandparent's dairy!
