Lemons: They're full of Vitamin C, copper, magnesium, calcium and potassium, and they're good for boosting the immune system and aiding digestion. Some say they work to fight cancer. And, depending on where you live (or if you have a lemon tree of your own) they can be a NoJobSurvivor Frugal Food. AND, who knows... starting a lucrative lemonade stand could even help pay the bills!
Basic Lemonade Recipe:
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 4 cups of water
- 3-4 large lemons
Add sugar to warm water and stir to dissolve. Juice the lemons and strain into a bowl. [Tip: roll the lemons around on the counter first, it will loosen the juice.]
Add the lemon juice to the sugar/water and refrigerate. You may want to add more of one or two of the ingredients, depending on your taste. Adjust for ice usage as well.
