Homemade Lemonade Concentrate

Total Time

I found this in a blog post and thought I would save it here. I have not tried it yet but it looks like it could be good.


  1. Wash the lemons well and cut them into thick slices.
  2. Put these in a large saucepan with the water and sugar.
  3. Bring to a boil and let simmer for 10 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and let cool.
  5. Keep covered in the fridge for 24 hours.
  6. Strain, pour into a clean jar, cover and refrigerate.
  7. You now have a concentrate that needs to be mixed with water: one part concentrate to three parts water.
  8. Serve with lots of ice.

I absolutely LOVE good lemonade!!! I'll take a cold glass of lemonade over a cold beer, ANY day! This recipe is VERY good! I didn't use "organic" lemons, though. When making a glass of it, I would suggest adding some sugar to taste...otherwise it's a little bitter, but with the extra sugar, it's VERY refreshing! THANKS for sharing!!!
