Original recipe yields 4 servings

Directions

  1. Peel the rinds from the 5 lemons and cut them into 1/2 inch slices. Set the lemons aside.
  2. Place the rinds in a bowl and sprinkle the sugar over them. Let this stand for about one hour, so that the sugar begins to soak up the oils from the lemons.
  3. Bring water to a boil in a covered saucepan and then pour the hot water over the sugared lemon rinds. Allow this mixture to cool for 20 minutes and then remove the rinds.
  4. Squeeze the lemons into another bowl. Pour the juice through a strainer into the sugar mixture. Stir well, pour into pitcher and pop it in the fridge! Serve with ice cubes.

This is wonderful, especially with Meyer lemons. Be careful with the sugar though. I started with less sugar and didn't need to add the rest. A tip to those who think this is bitter- the peel is not bitter, the white membrane inside it is. Use a sharp knife to peel the lemons and take only the colored part, not the white, and no bitterness.

The best lemonade I've ever tasted- you can make this recipe simpler by juicing the lemons first, then adding sugar to the rinds.

Nice taste, but one tip... resist the urge to press the peel or stir it around in the sugar. Just put it in, mix it lightly and let it alone! Otherwise the end result will be bitter. Trust me.
