Purple lemonade


Author: Aušra

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.

Purple lemonade

Time needed:

Ingredients:
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)

Directions:

  • 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.
  • Enjoy!

Lemon chicken

Chicken is quite often prepared for lunch or dinner at our house, so it’s not surprise that I try to find new recipes with it. Till now I haven’t tried chicken with lemon. But this recipe is with mild lemon taste and is not very sour, so all my family enjoy it.

Black currant pie

This year I try to make something new out of currant because last year I had no time for them. And the first try – a pie with black currants. I took it to my work and my colleagues enjoyed it a lot. So after a few days I baked it again to my hubby because I knew he will love it too. I wasn’t wrong 🙂 So believe me – this pie with a creamy black currant cream is really worth your time!

Cake Lemon Butterfly

I chose this cake because it was with lemon, so had to be refreshing, and it was in butterfly shape – it had to fit for my daughter’s birthday, because she love every creature that is alive 🙂 And I was wright! The cake was very good! I baked only half portion, but it was really enough for 6-8 people. Only next time I would bake only 2/3 of sponge, because we like when cake is almost all of cream and sponge is a very thin layer. But you should decide by yourself.

Gluten-free poppy seed cake with lemon glaze

For those, who still have left poppy seeds from Christmas. For those, who is seeking gluten-free cake. For those, who adore poppy seeds and lemon combination (it’s really worth trying!). This cake is really delicious, despite it contains only a few ingredients. I used 17cm diameter form, but original suggested to use 19cm diameter form. You should decide what size you will choose by yourself 🙂

Yoghurt cake with currant cream

Maybe this is the last recipe with currants this year. This time with white currants, because I just love them. I decided to use them in this cake, although you can use black or red currants. First time I did everything by the recipe – and currant seeds were annoying. Second time boiled currants I strained through the mesh – but then cream wasn’t so refreshing. So the next time I will go the easy way and leave seeds 🙂
