The Sunday Project- Make your own Homemade Lemonade

Hello and welcome to The Sunday Project. Each week we will be sharing something fun and productive to do on Sunday afternoon. As well as giving away some of our secrets we’ve also asked a selection of our favourite people from around Cornwall and beyond to share their expertise with us all! This week Josh Linfitt one of our Head Barmen is sharing our recipe for homemade lemonade…

Lemons FridgeBeautiful Italian lemons are at their best when harvested between now and the early Autumn. We have a wonderful recipe for homemade lemonade syrup that makes the most of their delicious zest that so often get discarded after juicing.

ingredients

You will need:

– Five large un-waxed lemons

– Two Pods of Vanilla

– 20 Dried Juniper Berries (now stocked in most super markets)

– Two Pints of Water

– Two Pint Glasses full of caster sugar

Lemons PeeledWhat to do:

– Use a peeler to take the zest from the lemons. Place the zest in a blender.

Scraping vanilla– Next, score the vanilla pods, then scrape out all the seeds. Add the seeds and the pods to the blender with the lemon zest.

with water in blender– Add the juniper berries to the blender. Then top up the blender with two pints of water.

blending– Blitz the ingredients until they are all broken down.

simmer simmer– Add the blended mixture to a pan and simmer for 15 minutes to infuse all the flavours.

adding sugar– Pour the mixture into a heatproof jug and add two pint glasses full of caster sugar.

Strained– Allow the mixture to cool, then fine sieve by placing a new j-cloth inside a sieve or colander and pouring the liquid through.

Funnel– Use a funnel to pour the syrup into two bottles.

Bottled– Ta da, you have your very own homemade lemonade syrup.

strain– To make up the syrup into refreshing lemonade, simply at 50ml of syrup and 25ml of lemon juice to a glass filled with lots of ice and top with your choice of still or sparkling water. Add a few rays of sunshine and you have the perfect afternoon!

– Finally share your picture with us! We want to see you and your friends and family, preparing, making and enjoying your lemonade on our social media. Use #TheSundayProject on Twitter and Instagram or post them up on our Facebook page here:
