This recipe is basically along the lines of one that I think got from Dave and his Mom quite a while back. As soon as the lemons start coming down in price each year I start making up a couple of batches a month.
Servings:
many
Preparation Time:
0.5 hours
Tools
  • scrub brush
  • grater/zester
  • 1 qt. bowl
  • wooden spoon
  • juicer
  • 1 qt. storage bottle
  • strainer

Ingredients

  • organic lemons (14 large, 18 medium, or 22 small)
  • 2 c. granulated sugar
  • 1/2 t. kosher salt
  • boiling water
Cooking Instructions
  1. Wash and zest all of the lemons. Place all of the zest into the bowl.
  2. Add sugar and salt to the zest. Stir to coat the zest with the sugar. Pack the zest down into the bottom of the bowl.
  3. Let the zest rest on the counter until you are done juicing the lemons to give the sugar a change to pull oils out of the zest.
  4. Juice the lemons save the juice in the storage bottle.
  5. Carefully pour boiling water over the zest until it is 1/4" above the top of the zest.
  6. Stir to dissolve all of the sugar and then let the zest steep for 10 minutes.
  7. Strain out all of the zest and add the zest/sugar syrup to the lemon juice.
  8. Make up your lemonade by using about 1 part of the lemon mixture to 3 parts water. (Adjust to suit your taste.)
