It wouldn't be a week of lemons if I didn't share an amazing Lemonade recipe with you! It wasn't until about a year ago that I have had fresh squeezed Lemonade. It was so good and I will never have the fake stuff again...except at Chick-fil-a...only other Lemonade I will drink:) Give it a try, fill you Mason jar up with some frozen Raspberries and tons of ice...and why not put a slice or 2 of lemon in it as well. I found the recipe here.
1 3/4 c. white sugar
8 c. water
1 1/2 c. lemon juice (about 8 lemons, depending on the size)
In a small saucepan, combine sugar and 1 cup water. Bring to boil and stir to dissolve sugar. Allow to cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate until chilled.
Remove seeds from lemon juice, but leave pulp. In pitcher, stir together chilled syrup, lemon juice and remaining 7 cups of water.
