Lemons ideas part one...
Ingrid is away and I am in charge! She is sunning (fingers crossed) herself in the UK and Croatia whilst I am finally getting it together post baby. Its only taken 5 months to get my head around when my baby sleeps, poops, eats and cries! Meanwhile our poor blog has been neglected...
I am getting the ball rolling with some spring ideas for using lemons.
I love "Roses lime cordial" and saw in my aunties fridge the other day a bottle of "posh" lemon cordial. I looked at the label and all it had in it was water, sugar and lemon juice. It came from a shop up the road from me so I popped in to get some but was horrified at the price $15.00 (It came in a beautiful bottle so that's probably what you are paying for) so with an abundance of lemons I decided to make my own.
What you need
1 1/2 cup lemon juice
1 cup water
1 cup white sugar
How to make
Bring to the boil and simmer until the liquid becomes syrupy. It will take about 20-30 minutes.
