Refreshing chilled in hot weather and a soothing winter drink when heated up. This lemonade is lemony and mild, not overly sweet and doesn’t make your lips pucker. Let the flavor develop in the fridge overnight. Don’t worry about the seeds, because they won’t get crushed in the blender.

6 cups water
3/4 cup sugar
3 lemons, peeled

• Place 6 cups of water in a pot.
• Add the sugar and bring it to full boil.
• Remove pot from heat.
• Ladle out 1 cup of sugar water into a bowl and let it cool somewhat.
• Meanwhile peel 3 lemons, removing most of the white rind.
• Place the pealed lemons in a blender and pour in the 1/2 cup of sugar water.
• Cover and process.
• Place a fine sieve over the pot with the remaining sugar water.
• Pour the lemon juice through the sieve and into the pot.
• Discard the pulp and the seeds.
• Heat the lemonade but do not let it come to boil.
• Pour it in a glass jug.
• Let it cool and then refrigerate overnight.
• Serve it on a bed of ice or heat up a cup as needed.
• Makes 6-1/2 to 7 cups of lemonade.
