    Stephen Little's Note:

    This is from one of my first Good House Keeping cookbooks. You must use a *zester* in order to avoid getting any of that bitter rind, and when you zest the lemons, zest them onto some sugar from the recipe (the sugar will 'catch' all of the oils). I also advise you from personal experience to use only the best skinned lemons for the best flavor.

      The taste was excellent, and it really wasn't difficult to make at all. My stepdaughter and I did this one afternoon, and everything turned out great; the only change we made was to add more hot water to dissolve the sugar; the amount called for was not quite enough. Very good taste, especially with the lemon zest. Excellent recipe we'll use often.

      My favourite lemonade recipe is essentially the same as this. Allowing the sugar to absorb the lemon oils is what makes it so delicious. The syrup is quite concentrated so a little goes a long way. I usually use the zest of 4 lemons, their juice and 1 cup of boiling water and 1 cup sugar. It's good old fashioned lemonade. Use mineral water to dilute the syrup and you get a great fizzy drink.

      It was hot the other day and I decided to make some lemonade. This really quenched our thirst and was awesome!
