Fresh Lemonade with Raw Sugar

In our latest Bountiful Basket we received 8 lemons, which isn't a fruit I cook with often. When my oldest daughter saw the lemons, she exclaimed, "Oh, we can make lemonade!" She had learned how to make it in preschool previously and had been wanting to make it at home ever since. She was so excited I decided we'd better do it, but we made it with raw sugar instead of refined. It was lovely and made my daughter's day.

Fresh Lemonade with Raw Sugar
  • 6 lemons (about 2 c. lemon juice)
  • 1 c. raw sugar
  • 6 c. cold water
Stir raw sugar and 1 c. of the water together in small saucepan. Heat, stirring often, until sugar is completely dissolved and resembles syrup.

Squeeze juice from 6 lemons.

In pitcher thoroughly mix 5 more cups water, lemon juice, and sugar syrup. Place in fridge until desired coldness. Serve.
