ALWAYS - READY LEMONADE.
NOTE. This recipe has been trjed
at the home of "Yc Editor" who can
from experience highly recommend it.
There is nothing more refreshing
on a hot day thani a long drink of cool
lemonade, but, however anxious the
hostess srjay be to serve this bever
age, it is Lomctimcs impossible to do
so owing to the .lack of necessary in-,
grcdicnts. In fact, it is for just this
reason that the sirup that may be pre
pared by the following recipe is one o!
the grjeatest of household conven
iences. It is delicious, but what is
still more important it -enables one to
procure a supply of lemonade literally
at a moment's notice, says the May
Delineator. Extract th-c juice from a
dozen large lemons; grate the rind
of six of the lemons', and add it to
the juice. Let the mixture stand for
twelve hours or ovicr night. In the
morning make a thick sirup of granu
lated sugar and water using about
six pounds of the sugar, and just as
littles water as possible, as the sirup
must be both thick and smooth.
When it has cooled, strain the lemon
juice into it; bottle in glass, being
certain that the tops arc secure and
air-tight. In making lemonade with
this sirup, place a little crushed ice
in the bottom of a tall glass; add one
or two tcaspoonfuls of the sirup, ac
cording to taste, and fill with either
carbonated or plain water.
This sirup may also be used suc
cessfully in making cakes, pies, pud
dings, costardb, etc., being a most
economical method of utilizing lem
ons, as it enables the -cook to obtain
absolutely the full value of both sug
ar., and fruit. Surely thi9 is a fact
worthy cf consideration by ,thc eco
nomical housewife. t . ' '
