Today's recipe for my Cooking with Kids series I found on the Sister's Cafe. I just discovered this wonderful website and its five sisters who all love to cook and share their recipes. Not only do they have oodles of yummy looking recipes to try (I've already printed 6 I want to try soon), but their website is exactly how I envision this little blog to be someday with all four of us sisters, the two sister-in-laws, my mom, and a favorite cousin all taking turns sharing our favorite recipes. Of course since the average age of all their kids is about 2 while mine is 8, it might be a while. LOL! :) I also recently tried their zucchini soup and loved it. Thank you Sisters for your inspiration!
This freshly squeezed recipe was extra fun for the kids to do themselves--cutting, squeezing, and stirring all by themselves and the tasty, refreshing results were just as scintillating for the grown-ups as it was for the kids. Be sure to check out my other Cooking with Kids ideas.
The kids wanted me try to make it look fancy with lemon wedges and the sugar rim, just like at the restaurants. It cracked me up
doing it though, since we normally drink out of plastic Target cups.
5-6 cups cold water
2-3 cups sugar (we used 2)
Once you have juiced all the fruit, add the water and sugar to taste. Exactly how much water and sugar you add will depend on how juicy/sweet/sour your fruit is. I added 2 cups of sugar and 6 cups of water. Makes 2 quarts.
