(Almost) natural home made lemonade
Mom's best (almost) natural home made lemonade

Sometimes, on a summer day, drinking water doesn't do the trick, and you're looking for something refreshing to drink.

Here on the farm the temperature on long summer days often reaches into the mid 40's. On those days, a big gorgeous glass of cold lemonade is a lifesaver.

If you have your own lemon tree, or you can buy or trade locally that's first prize.

This is a tried and tested family recipe, shared here with you.

Although this recipe has sugar, the lemonade is so concentrated that a little goes a far way. This is an (almost) natural recipe!

Lemons 10 - 12

Cream of Tartar 15 ml

Citric Acid 15 ml

Cups of sugar 12

Epsom Salts 15 ml

Boiling Water 1,5 litres

Grate the peel of one lemon

Squish juice from the lemons

Add juice and peel in a plastic or glass bowl

Add sugar, citric acid, Epsom salts, cream of tartar

Add boiling water and stir until everything is dissolved.

Pour into sterilized glass bottles and seal.

We collect pretty glass bottles with screw caps especially to make this lemonade. It makes an almost natural home made gift, which is always appreciated by friends.
