Homemade Lemonade! Every summer, Cole and I make homemade lemonade.
This summer, Cole talked me into buying this pitcher for our lemonade. It had a handy spout; we have a mason jar addiction. Odd, I know.
And then Cole asked me to buy 36 lemons because he decided a full pitcher or lemonade was better than a half-empty pitcher of lemonade. So I did and…
Together we peeled,
We measured 12 cups of sugar (don’t judge) and added 30 cups of water.
And then, because we sometimes enjoy strawberry syrup in our lemonade, we pitted and sliced two pounds of strawberries to create the syrup.
It took time, muscle and a tolerance for sticky floors, but the final result was worth it.
Mason Jars! Did you notice?
Lesson: If you give a teen a BIG pitcher, he’s going to want to make two plus gallons of lemonade to go in it. I don’t mind. Really. Can one have too much homemade lemonade? No.
If you are in our neighborhood stop by, sit a spell and enjoy a glass with us.
