I sorted my fridge today as I usually do on Fridays. I seem to have a lot of lemons. Well, you know what they say - if life gives you lemons, make lemonade!
I've always loved homemade lemonade but years ago it was quite a faff to make it - grate the zest, squeeze the lemons - you know the drill. Since I've had a food processor it's easy peasy, lemon squeezy.
Just chop three lemons very roughly including the skin and pith (each one into 4-6 pieces) and bung them into the processor. Whizz to a pulp. Add about six tablespoons sugar and whizz again.
Strain the pulp and sugar mixture through a sieve. Don't push it through, just leave it to do its own thing for half an hour. Then pour about a pint of cold water through the stuff left in the sieve and let that drain into the strained juice. You now have lemonade which you can put in a jug and chill in the fridge.
This is not a cheap recipe unless you can find cheap lemons on RFQS but it is a treat fit to be served to anyone. (Or just kept for yourself!) Enjoy.
