I was always interested in how children make lemonade that I saw in the old american movies. So I was very eager to try to make it by myself. And we still have some berries in our garden, so I made this lemonade. The result was very refreshing. Just it was too strong for us, so when we watered-down in half-and-half we got very light dring with a mild taste of lemon and black currants.
1 cup = 237 ml
- 340 g black currants
- 1 ¾ cups sugar
- 2 lemons grated zest
- 2 l water
- 1 ¼ cups freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 5 lemons)
- Puree the currants in a food mill using the finest disc. If the puree has seeds, strain it through a fine mesh sieve to remove them.
- Combine the sugar, lemon zest, and 1 cup of the water in a small saucepan.
- Heat until the sugar dissolves.
- Remove from the heat and let cool.
- Stir in the lemon juice and strain through a fine mesh sieve.
- Stir together the currant puree, lemon mixture, and remaining water in a large pitcher.
- Serve over ice.
- For sparkling Purple Lemonade, substitute soda water for half of the second quantity of water.
