Time to Make It: 15 minutes
Yield: 8 cups lemonade
5 pounds lemons
2 cups water
2 cups sugar
- Cut lemons in half. Juice each lemon through a strainer into a large measuring cup. Keep juicing until you have 2 cups of lemon juice.
- Pour water into a medium-size saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in sugar. Continue cooking over heat until sugar is dissolved and liquid looks clear again.
- Combine sugar solution with lemon juice. This is a lemonade concentrate. When ready to serve, add water to taste.
Note: the lemonade concentrate can be frozen for later use. Just pour it into a gallon-sized ziploc bag and lay flat in the freezer. When ready to serve, thaw, and add water to taste.
