A wonderful recipe from Suewho on Allrecipes.com She adds: "The secret ingredient is salt, which removes any bitterness. Don't be tempted to use reconstituted lemon juice or to add the juice until the sugar water is completely chilled!"
- In a pot combine water, sugar and salt. Bring to a boil and continue to boil for 2 minutes. Chill the sugar water for at least 60 minutes in the refrigerator.
- In a 2 quart pitcher mix cooled sugar water and lemon juice together. Pour over ice and serve.
Good and refreshing. I made this as directed and we all enjoyed this over ice. Made for Spring PAC 2011.
This was a real treat. It was definitely not bitter and only slightly sweet. I used fresh squeezed lemon juice, which it took about 5 medium size lemons to get the right amount of juice. I served it over ice, with a slice of lemon for a little extra citrus pulp. Thanks, RavynLoony. Made for 2009 Fall Pick-A-Chef.
