Make Lemonade

Summertime is the perfect time to make a batch of good old fashioned lemonade. I don't mean the artificially colored powdered drink mix from the grocery store. No, teach your kids how to make fresh squeezed, delicious, old-fashioned lemonde.

Squeeze enough lemons to get one cup of juice. Depending on the size of the lemons will determine how many lemons you need, I usually use about eight small ones. Add one cup of sugar and fill a container with enough water to make 2 quarts. Chill.

For special occasions you can add slices of lemon, strawberries or raspberries.

This makes a delicious summertime treat.

(and save the powdered drink mix for a lemonade stand!) :)
