    This recipe is for a 2 quart spouted container.

    3 - 4 good size fresh lemons
    1 cup sugar

    Roll the lemons on the counter to get them good and juicy, breaking the pulp inside. before actually opening the lemon.

    Cut 2 or 3 of the lemons in half (I start with 2) juice them, trying to get all the juice (no sense in wasting).  You'll want about 1/2 cup of juice, depending on your taste.

    Mix in the sugar, then add water, stir until the sugar is dissolved.  For a finishing touch I take the remain lemon and slice it in 1/4 inch rounds and drop them in the pitcher.

    Add ice to your glass, pour and enjoy!!

    1 or more lemons depending on the size of your jug, I use 2 to a pint jug.
    wash them, organic unwaxed are the best, slice them, and drop them into the jug.
    add a couple of tablespoons full of sugar or honey
    add boiling water to just below the spout
    let cool and leave in the fridge until next day
    delicious with lime or oranges as well.
    I often add a tablespoon full of washed pot barley before adding the boiling water.  if you can't get pot barley, pearl barley will do.
