If you want to make a gorgeous yet simple lemonade then grab some lemons off of a tree (or from your local market) and get squeezing! This recipe is too quick and delish to pass up. It’s also fun to make with any eager kitchen helpers hanging around.
I had Nova help me with the squeezing bit. Practically since he could talk he’s been smitten by the idea of making lemonade. He’s also quite determined to create recipes of his own any chance he gets his hands on “ingredients”. Anything goes with his experimentations as you can see from this clip I took yesterday over lunch.
This week we’ve been house sitting for a friend who has Meyer lemons, figs and avocados growing abundantly in her yard. We’ve been eating like kings and queens with natures royal bounty! We wanted to share the abundance with you. We hope you enjoy this lemonade as much as we enjoyed making it!
