It started with the fact the the recipe was in English and had US measurements... As you all know by now I am Dutch and we use Kilometers and meters to indicate distance, and grams and kilograms to indicate weight. Since I am no star at conversions it was a challenge!
The recipe was as follows (best-lemonade-ever):
- 1 3/4 cups white sugar
- 8 cups water
- 1 1/2 cups lemon juice
- In a small saucepan, combine sugar and 1 cup water. Bring to boil and stir to dissolve sugar. Allow to cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate until chilled.
- Remove seeds from lemon juice, but leave pulp. In pitcher, stir together chilled syrup, lemon juice and remaining 7 cups water.
So last weekend I decided to make it again but this time with less sugar.... and not paying any attention to the recipe and all the cups/grams/liters and so one, I decided I can make it without any help... but now it is too sour... Hmmmm I think I need to make it more often until I have it right!
In case there are any readers who have a home made recipe PLEASE send it to me!!!!!
