It has been extremely hot and unfortunately my creative space is lacking in the aircon department…i.e we don’t have one, so not alot of baking has been going on all week.
A lovely friend came round for a visit yesterday with yummy ice-cream & fruit sticks to cool down the little ones and a big bag of lemons for me…insert BIG smile here.
So here is some visual lemonade to cool you down.
If you’d like to make it yourselves, here’s the recipe from Apples for Jam
70 g caster sugar
one long strip of lemon rind
juice of 2 1/2 lemons (1/2 cup)
500ml sparkling mineral water
- Put sugar, lemon rind and a few tablespoons of water in a small pan and bring to the boil, stirring until sugar is completely dissolved and boil for a few minutes
- add lemon juice and let it boil for another few minutes
- pour into a large jar and let it cool
- pour cold sparkling mineral water in when ready to serve
makes about 2 1/2 cups so adjust recipe to suit
Pour some in a special glass and enjoy some spectacular creative spaces round at Kirsty’s.
