Healthy Homestead Lemonade!

We buy our lemons in bulk from Costco

The Boy wants to be a chef so he's usually the first to volunteer for kitchen duty. We use a electric juicer but non-electric work just fine too.

With all this great spring weather we're having and all the yard work we've been doing it's nice to take a break and sip a tall, cool, glass of fresh, homemade lemonade. It's so easy to make that I have assigned the task to my children. It's yummy and there are no artificial colors or flavors.

16 oz of fresh squeezed lemon juice (about 6 lemons)
8 cups water
sugar to taste (we like to add about a cup)
Cut lemons in half, juice, strain, pour into pitcher
Add water and sugar, stir
add ice if desired and garnish with extra slices of lemon

You can also use limes in this recipe. Make limeade or lemon-limeade.
