Step 1: What You Will Need
- 2-3 lemons
- 1 cup of sugar
- 6 cups of water
- Stirring spoon
- A paring knife
- Fruit Juicer
- Cutting board
- Clean pitcher
- A small strainer
NOTE: When using a knife, always be sure to have proper parental guidance. Maybe ask your grandma!
Step 2: Prepare Your Lemon Juice
You will need to use your cutting board and paring knife to cut each lemon in half.
CAUTION: When using the paring knife, be careful not to cut yourself on the blade.
If you don't know how to use a paring knife, here is an educational video to help you.
Once you have all lemons in half, you can grab your fruit juicer. Place one lemon half in the hand juicer with the peel facing outwards. Push down on the lemon until the lemon half is fairly flat between the two juicing domes. Repeat for all lemon halves. If more lemons are needed to make it 1/2 cup of juice, repeat the process.
Step 3: Combine Juice and Sugar
Now you will combine the freshly squeezed lemon juice with your sugar.
Grab your pitcher and pour the cup of sugar into it. Then add your lemon juice.
Using your stirring spoon, begin stirring the mixture until the sugar is dissolved. The sugar will not fully dissolve, but just make sure it is well mixed together.
Step 4: Add Water
Measure out 6 cups of water. Add this to your sugary lemon juice mixture and use your spoon to continue mixing.
Step 5: Chill and Enjoy!
Place your pitcher of delicious lemonade in the fridge overnight
Serve lemonade with ice cubes in a glass.
