Homemade Lemonade


Equipment

Measuring Cups
Cutting board
Sharp Knife
Citrus Juicer
Pitcher
Large spoon

Ingredients

5 Lemons
4 Cups water
3/4 Cup suger
Ice Cubs
Lemon slices(if you like)
Strawberries(if you like)
1. On a cutting board, use a sharp knife to cut each lemon.
in half through the middle. Hold each lemon tightly while you cut it,
so it doesn't roll around. Keep your fingers away from the knife at all times!
Whenever you are cutting with a knife, use a cutting board so you don't
cut the counter top.

2. Hold a citrus juicer on the top of a 2-cup measure cup.
Squeeze the juice from a lemon by turning it back and forth on the citrus juicer
till all the juice is out. Push down hard as you turn so you get all the
juice out of the lemon half and into the measuring cup.Throw away the lemon
pulp and seeds that gather in the juicer. Repeat with remaining lemon halves.
After squeezing the lemon halves, you should have about 1 cup lemon juice.
Pour the lemon juice into a pitcher.

3. Measure the water and the suger. Add them to the
pitcher with the lemon juice.

4. Use a large spoon to stir together all the ingrediants in the pitcher.
Stir till the suger dissolves. Pour the lemonade over ice cubs in tall glasses.
Put a lemon slice and a strawberry into each glass if you like.
Makes 6 or 7 servings.
