Summertime Lemonade

These past few weeks I have found myself patronizing the local library quite a bit, using the online library catalog to request items from neighboring county libraries. I checked out a Martha Stewart DVD full of summertime ideas, one of which was a recipe for homemade lemonade. Dearest d. and I made a large pitcher of lemonade to accompany our homemade sweet potato fries. Mmmm, yum!

Summertime Lemonade (from Martha Stewart)

Makes about 2 quarts
1 cup sugar syrup (recipe follows)
1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (about six large lemons)
 In a large pitcher, combine 2 quarts cold water, sugar syrup, and lemon juice. Add ice, and serve in tall glasses.
Sugar Syrup
Makes 1 cup
2/3 cup sugar
4 two-inch strips lemon rind (yellow part only)
In a small saucepan, combine sugar, 1/2 cup water, and lemon rind. Bring to a boil, remove from heat, and cool.
