Lemons | Sugar Honey | Water
Wash lemons thoroughly with soap or vegetable spray, & warm water. Roll lemons firmly on a hard surface until they become soft. This will help them to release their juice.
Slice the lemons. Mash the lemon slices and the sugar in a large bowl until the sugar is dissolved.
Strain the sugar-lemon mixture into a glass measuring cup, and measure 2 cups. Add the 2 cups lemon-sugar mixture to a pitcher and add 8 cups water. Stir
Use freshly squeezed lemon juice from real lemons Choose large ones that give to gentle pressure Mashing the lemon slices helps to extract the oils in the lemon peel and adds more of the fragrant citrus flavor
