    CulinaryQueen's Note:

    From the Inquirer Magazine of the Philadelphia Inquirer, August 1998. Unwaxed lemons would be ideal for this if you can find them.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 6

    Yield:

    Cups

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cut lemons in half lengthwise and slice thinly, as if for garnish.
    2. 2
      Mash them with the sugar and salt in a large, deep bowl or crock with an old-fashioned potato masher or heavy wooden spoon until the slices give up their juice, the sugar is dissolved and the juice is syrupy, about 5 minutes.
    3. 3
      Pour about half the lemon slices into a sieve over a bowl or pot, pressing the solids to release as much liquid as possible.
    4. 4
      Discard the solids and transfer the liquid to a serving pitcher.
    5. 5
      Repeat the process with the remaining lemons.
    6. 6
      Stir in the water until blended.
    7. 7
      Add ice cubes or chill, stirring just before serving over ice.

      This lemonade is perfect. Just the right balance of tart and sweet. I will never buy pre-made lemonade or lemonade concentrate again.

      OUTSTANDING!!! I had been looking for a recipe for "real" lemonade to serve for a crowd and this one did the trick. I tripled the recipe and it was perfect. Just the right amount of sugar made this not too sweet and just right for our gathering. Thanks CQ!!
