I’ve missed blogging about food. Our family went on a week long mission trip to Honduras and I was unable to post while we were away. I will share more later about our trip and the wonderful food the cooks at Mission Lazarus prepared for us. Meanwhile I wanted to repost one of our summer time favorites, Just Peachy Lemondae. I keep getting requests to make this at our house. Here’s the repost:
Peach Lemonade is a refreshing way to beat this Tennessee heat. The peaches are ready to harvest around here. Saturday I whipped up some peach lemonade,with fresh peaches and real lemons, and it was all gone by nightfall. It was a hit here at home!
- 2 cups peach puree (from fresh or frozen peaches)
- 2 cups fresh lemon juice (about 12 lemons)
- 2 cups sugar
- cold water
Puree fresh or frozen peaches in a Magic Bullet or a blender. Pour peach puree into a gallon pitcher, add lemon juice, sugar, and stir until sugar is dissolved. Then fill pitcher with cold water and ice. Find a happy place to sit a spell, prop up your feet, relax and sip peachy lemonade.
This recipe can easily be halved to make 1/2 gallon.
