Refreshing Homemade Lemonade


What do you do when you have lemons?  You make lemonade of course!

It’s lemon season at the moment.  They are abundant on trees.  I’m proud to own a lemon tree and it bore fruit for the first time this year. Since it’s my tree’s first year fruiting, it only had 6 lemons.  I managed to use them to bake a lemon meringue cake (of which, I am hoping to blog very soon).

I got my hands on some cheap lemons and I knew what I wanted to do with them.  I wanted to make lemonade.  I found a recipe by the Hairy Bikers and it was easy and quick.  I keep the lemon syrup in the fridge and make the lemonade when needed (or requested).



Makes a jug full.

  • 8 medium sized lemons
  • 1.2kg white sugar
  • 75g citric acid
  1. Slice the lemons thinly, removing any pips and place in a large heatproof bowl
  2. Add the citric acid and the sugar
  3. Pour 700ml of boiling water
  4. Leave to cool then sieve into a jug
  5. To serve, dilute with water or soda water.  Serve with ice and some fresh lemon slices


Bon Appetite,
