It’s a warm Summer evening, you’re out relaxing and counting the fireflies... what you need is a nice refreshing beverage, and I have the perfect one for you. I love a good glass of lemonade, but I usually like to make my own… this is a recipe for lemonade with peaches, and we’re using fresh Summer peaches fresh clover honey, and fresh lemons. It's chemical free... it's organic... it's delicious... OH YEAH BABY!!! Actually, you could combine any fruits you want, and make it your own, but this is my favorite, and my guests agree. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

    Chef’s Tip: The amount of honey you use will be determined by two factors: 1. The tartness of the lemons you are using. 2. How sweet or how tart you want the concentrate to be.
