Summer Indeed, Lemonade!

I wasn't kidding when I said I went a little crazy in the kitchen last Friday afternoon.

I love lemons and lemonade, and can you believe I have never made lemonade? Now, with the juicer it's even easier. I used what was described as the "Perfect Lemonade" recipe. The perfect designation seems to be a result of using a simple syrup instead of just dumping in straight sugar

- scant 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup lemon juice (approximately 5 lemons in the juicer)
Heat the sugar and water gently in a sauce pan until the sugar dissolves
Juice the lemons.
Add the simple syrup and lemon juice to a pitcher. Dilute with 3-4 cups water. Add lemon slices to serve.
Summer Indeed!
