I get lemons almost everyday! Falling off my tree that is.
I have an old lemon tree in my backyard that has lemons year round. My routine the past couple of years has been, just collect the lemons that fall of he tree. Sometimes I have so many I have to give them away. Sometimes I just get one every other day. As soon as I have about 6 I squeeze them and freeze the juice in a zip lock bag. I always freeze 2 cups of juice. That way when I plan on making lemonade I have the exact amount for my recipe. I have had this recipe for about 12 years now. I first came across it at a creative memories crop. When I am asked to share a recipe this is the one I turn to.
I love the part where I freeze the juice. It’s like concentrate but without all the sugar.
When I make it this way I simply let the bag sit on the counter for a few minuets to thaw, while a make the simple syrup. I then place the frozen juice in the pitcher I am gonna use. Pour the simple syrup over the frozen juice, and add the 5 cups of water. Foe another variation I freeze fruit that I can’t finish, like strawberries in a zip lock bag, when I make the lemonade I add them as ice cubes. They eventually thaw out and you get a strawberry lemonade! You can also just add a bag of frozen fruit from the store.
