Have you ever thought about how to make Organic Lemonade. We love it so much! I started making it last fall. I love making it because I know what is in it. You can make it with traditional or organic lemons. What I find is the organic lemons are smaller and it takes more to obtain the amount of juice that you want. They have a very clean taste though and I love making lemonade from them.
- You will need 1 bag of organic lemons 10 - 12
- Sweetleaf Stevia or Sugar
- Filtered water
- To start be sure the lemons are at room temperature. If you keep them in the refrigerator allow them to sit over night so they are easier to juice.
- Roll the lemons on the counter with your hand before you juice.
- You can use a hand juicer however it is hard on your hands. We prefer an electric juicer. We purchased an attachment for our kitchen aid mixer and it works well.
- Juice your lemons
- Make sugar-water by boiling water with an equal amount of sugar (I have also used all natural maple syrup and that works really well too)
- For 1 gallon of lemonade use 2 cups sugar-water and 4 lemons
- Add lemon juice while sugar water is hot.
- If it tastes too sweet, add more water. If it tastes too sour, add more sugar-water. If it tastes too weak, add more lemon juice.
- If you have left over lemon juice freeze it into an ice-cube tray.
- Refrigerate and serve with ice and lemon slices for garnish, if desired.
- You can see the chart below for Sweetleaf Stevia if desired instead of sugar. If you use all natural maple syrup use desired for your preference.
