    Chef Gustival's Note:

    This recipe came from my ex-husbands great-grandmother. It is quite old and tastes great. My whole family absolutely loves it and it makes a LOT of concentrate! If you have troubles finding tartaric acid, I found it at a make your own wine store. The citric acid I find at a pharmacy.

      I have been making this recipe for years, my Mom made it before that and my Grandmother before that! I can certainly vouch for this one and rate it 5 stars!!! It's very easy to make and tastes great. It sounds like a lot of sugar, but you need only a very small amount of this concentrate to make a great glass of lemonade. I try to use organic lemons and oranges as the rind does sit in the mixture overnight. (Who needs more pesticides intheir systems?) Tartaric acid can also be ordered in at your pharmacy. ETA: You can also use 3 lemons and 3 oranges for a little different taste. That version is our favourite.
