I spied this one on Gooseberry Jam for Homemade Lemon Syrup and decided to give it a go. And yes it turned out very well indeed and I'm about to make a second batch this arvo.
Homemade Lemon Syrup
2 cups water
2 cups sugar
1 cup of lemon juice
Rind, from 1 lemon
Place water, sugar and lemon rind, which has been peeled from the lemon with a vegie peeler, into a saucepan.
Boil for 5 minutes, then add the lemon juice.
Allow to cool, strain and pour into bottles. (I sterilised a couple of glass juice bottles to store the syrup in).
Store in the fridge.
Well I better get back to the kitchen, lemon syrup time and then I've got pies to bake- an apple, apple & berry, and a gramma... That should keep me busy and while they're in the oven I'll relax with the August issue of Country Style that just arrived in the mailbox today. With a beautiful heart cross-stitch cushion on the front, I can't wait to see what other lovelies await inside this issue.
