Milk, Milk, Lemonade


Milk, milk, lemonade. Push the button, fudge is made. And then you point to your butt. Classic.

This morning was gorgeous, and after feeding the pigs and ducks I grabbed a basket from the garage and filled it with all kinds of good stuff from the garden. Tiny spicy peppers, long stalks of ruby red rhubarb, dark green leaves of silverbeet, fresh lettuce (mostly covered in slugs…), one giant pearly duck egg annnnd.. lemons! A buttload of’em! And some grapefruits and oranges and tiny limes. It was a very colourful basket by the time I was finished. I made the pigs a special salad, slug covered greens with wrinkly peppers, yum!

CB was out in the driveway sawing away at scraps of wood, making us a shelf for groceries in the back of the van. I puttered around in the kitchen and made a kumera & bacon frittata with purple coleslaw for lunch and a giant pickle jar of lemonade! Twas nice.

Rolly coming to see what’s up and maybe he can score a nice juicy orange perhaps.

     Light Lemonade

8 lemons

1/4 cup honey

1/2 cup hot water

8 cups cold water

Put the honey in the jar.

Pour over hot water and stir to dissolve.

Place a strainer over the lid of the jar and ream lemons into it.

Press the pulp to get all the juicy juice out.

Fill with cold water, add ice cubes.



Lemons, large jar, mesh strainer, kettle for hot water, spoon for stirring, knife for slicing and a wooden stick for reaming out the lemons.
Pretty little bumpy lemons.

  1. Wow those have got to be the thickest skinned lemons I’ve seen! How deceiving.

    I adore home made lemonade. I always add the honey and hot water in last, but it makes sense to add them in at the start so that it all melts together. I like my lemonade a little on the tart side, it makes it so moreish. I can’t get enough.

    1. Thanks! If you have been drinking just warm water and lemon juice you might find this very sweet. I have switched recently to your recipe– warm water and lemon. It makes me feel so good in the morning!
