Cook - lemonade on a sunny day

I've never attempted to make homemade lemonade before and my youngest has been urging us to have a go for a while, so we took a bag of lemons and turned them into this:

It's another Nigella Lawson recipe from Nigella Express (Cloudy Lemonade for a Sunny Day). The recipe's not on her website but it's very simple and involves blending up roughly chopped lemons with sugar and fizzy water. It was lovely and refreshing, although I might do it slightly differently next time (using the blender instead of food processor and blending with a sugar and water syrup first, then adding fizzy water later). Or I may not make any changes at all, as the whole litre that we made this time disappeared very quickly!

    1. It was lovely. As was the sunny day - it feels like they've long gone now!

  2. Is there anything more refreshing than a glass of homemade lemonade on a hot summer's day? I think not. You've reminded me that my mum sometimes had a jug (always the green glass jug meant for sticks of celery!) waiting for me when I came home from school. It never failed to hit the spot.

    How are the holidays going? I've missed you! How is the running going?

    1. Long time no blog - sorry! I'm busy trying to catch up with everything blog related after a very busy summer - hope you've had a great holiday.


I'm not sure if anyone reads this. But if you do, and you'd like to comment, I'd get very excited. And would try to reply. Thanks!
