Change is always good......right? Well....not always! Some things just don't need to be changed!
Here's a Lemonade recipe from my mother's 1950's Betty Crocker Cookbook.....worked in the 1950's and it's works today))) Enjoy!
Combine in a saucepan:
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of water
Rind of 2 lemons, cut into pieces
Stir over low heat until sugar is dissolved. Boil about 7 minutes. Cool.
1 cup lemon juice (5 to 6 lemons)
4 cups ice water
Pour over ice in pitcher or tall glasses. Yields about 6 to 8 servings.
Place bruised mint leaves in bottom of glasses before adding Lemonade. Garnish each glass with a sprig of mint. (If you grew up in the 50's, you might find this mint growing in your garden.)))
Add a little grenadine syrup.
Follow receipt above but use 1 qt water and 1 1/2 cups sugar for the syrup. Add 2 cups crushed pineapple with 1 1/2 cups of lemon juice. Garnish each glass with a sprig of mint. Serves 10.
Use lime juice instead of lemon. Add a little green food coloring if desired.
In place of lemon juice, use 2 cups of orange juice and 1/4 cup of lemon juice.
