When life gives you lemons.... or limes
I was drifting about on Pinterest, you know how you do..... and I found this.

- It balances your ph.
- It gives you a glowing complexion.
- It gives you whole digestive track a jumpstart.
- It can help with weight loss.
- It just might help you kick the caffeine addiction.
Here are the steps....
|Slice ten limes into quarters.|
|Now using a sharp paring knife carefully slice the pulp from the skin.|
|I got about a cup of pulp quarters. I squeeze the rinds to get all the juice.|
|Use a juicer to process the fruit.|
|Add about two cups water. This pitcher has a device to infuse more fruit flavor, and it adds color.|
|The traditional method of sweetening is to add equal parts water and sugar and boil until clear. I used 1 cup of each.|
It wasn't as big a hit as I expected. Over the weekend, I made a batch with lemons and it went over with more of a hurrah. I used 8 lemons, 1 cup water, 1 cup sugar.
The pitcher is one we found earlier this spring at TJ Maxx. It has a cylinder chilling device which screws into the cover to keep the beverage from getting diluted.
