How do you make homemade lemonade? | National Dish of England

Homemade lemonade and English favourite and so easy | National Dish

 

United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

A British favourite – homemade lemonade, Mary Berry I am sure has made a fair bit of this.

I had to post this one as I made it with the kids, they wanted to sell it in our village for and raise money for our village panto that supports a local children’s charity – The James Hopkins Trust

It’s very easy, but…it does contain a fair amount of sugar AND you’ll wanna stick gin in it…so not super healthy, fun though.

You can't call this cooking, but it goes so well with gin, at least you'll be steaming. But, this recipe is for kids - lemonade only...

  1. Get a bowl, your serving container (I used a homemade beer brewing barrel, a Kilner jar will do), chopping board and knife. Roll the lemons to soften them up and slice in half to squeeze.

  2. Squeeze all the lemon juice into a bowl and throw the skins into your serving container. Either catch the pips or scoop em out with a perforated spoon.

  3. Add to the bowl all of the sugar and stir. Then add all of the boiling water and stir.
  4. When it's cool enough, give it a taste, if it makes your face look like a walnut, add some more sugar BUT REMEMBER THIS, you will be diluting it, so it needs to taste really really lemony.
  5. Using a funnel, add the juice to your serving container and the awaiting lemon skins and let it sit like that until you need it - don't add the water or ice now, it'll just go flat.

  6. When ready to serve, add all the ice and water and stir or even better, shake it, if you can. It's ready.
  7. Thank you England United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland - even though we can't actually grow lemons...
