Stove Top

Ingredients

4 qt
fresh black currants
1 c
cold water
1 c
white sugar
2
lemons

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Please Note * Boil the water and currants without the sugar until the fruit are soft.

Adding the sugar too soon makes the currants tough, and they will not release their flavor.
2
Cover the currants with 1 cup of water and boil until the fruit is soft.
3
Strain the mixture, keeping only the juice.
4
Add 1 cup of sugar to the juice and reheat.
5
Once the sugar has dissolved and the mixture has thickened a little pour the black currant syrup into a jar and seal, allow to cool; when cooled place in refrigerator until ready to use.
6
When ready to serve, add ice cubes and the squeezed lemon halve to the chilled glass.
7
For one serving of lemonade use equal parts syrup and equal parts cold water with juice from a half a lemon.
