Dulce y citrico!

...I'm supposed to be packing...but there's so much going around....
...the sweet little man wanted to make homemade lemonade because we had 30 kilos of lemons cut from our lemon tree...his friend came over to help...and these are the results of the making of... ...first we cut the lemons...
...we squeeze them....
...we strain the juice VERY well through a net...(I use touli folded in 4)...
...for every cup of lemon juice we put 1 cup of granulated sugar (I put 3/4 of a cup)...and then we stir well until the sugar dilutes...
...when it's ready we pour it in a clean bottle and we keep it in the refrigerator...
...remember, this is concentrated lemonade since it has so much sugar, so when we want to serve it, we pour about 3 fingers of lemonade, in a glass, and the rest is water and ice cubes...
...believe me it's delicious and very refreshing...love it and enjoy it!
(please let me go pack now!)
