"FryDay" recipe: Lemonade & Granola
I'm in the mood for some lemonade! Not that too-sweet kind that comes in a frozen concentrate or the powdered kind that is full of cancer-causing NutraSweet. Oh no, I'm talking real lemonade from real lemons and real lemon juice! Not too sweet, but not too sour. Mmmm! Just perfect for a warm end-of-summer afternoon!
1/2 C. storebought lemon juice
1 C. sugar
2 Qts. water
2 Qt. pitcher and long wooden spoon to mix with
Wash lemons. Squeeze juice from lemons into a large pitcher. Add sugar; fill pitcher with 1 qt. water. Chop rinds into large pieces and let soak in lemonade. Stir well until sugar is totally dissolved, then stir a bit longer. Strain rinds out of juice. Add storebought lemon juice and fill with water to the 2 Qt. mark. Refrigerate until cold or serve over ice. Best if used within 24 hours.
