Litha Honey Lemonade

On another website that I subscribe too ( there was a post about Lemonade.  It is that time of year when the lemons go on sale, so I thought I would share my fav lemonade recipe.  I don't know where I got it (thinking that the recipe was given to me by an ol' coven sister) so I am not sure if it was an original of hers, or if she got it off the net or out of a book. 


Litha Honey Lemonade


6 lemons

1 cup sugar

1 cup honey

2 quart pitcher


1 cup boiling water

water to fill pitcher afterwards


Cut lemons. Squeeze out juice and discard seeds.

Place lemons in large bowl and drizzle with 1/2 cup of sugar and all of honey. Let sit for 20 to 25 minutes. Do not exceed 30 minutes or it will turn sour. Add 1 cup boiling water to dissolve sugar and honey on lemons. Stir until dissolved. Remove lemons and and place liquid into pitcher. Add reserved lemon juice into pitcher and add remaining 1/2 cup of sugar. Add ice and fill with water until pitcher is full. You may also use another lemon in slices to garnish. Enjoy.
