lemonade syrup the easy way


this recipe makes an intensely flavoured syrup from just the quantity of lemons you have on hand. no messing about with fixed measurements. we were working in pietermaritzburg, south africa for a while and our rented house had a lemon tree that had bushels of lemons. we were told about this recipe by locals. its almost too simple but it really works! the quantities shown in the ingredients are only there to give you an idea. the real measures you work out from the directions.
