Its hard to be a "locavore" when such summery essentials as lemons are not at the community farmstand. I try, but I make lots and lots of exceptions (life without avocados? no way!). Lemonade = summertime, as far as I'm concerned, so lemons are one of those exceptions. Here is what we did with ours today:

3 large lemons, juiced
1 scant cup of sugar
2 qts. water
a few drops of our secret ingredient:

Orange Blossom Water ( Zharr in arabic...available at Middle Eastern Rose Water)

Saved one of these for sipping from :)

Delightful! We froze some in popsicle molds, too.

When we have more time (patience?), I'd like to try some other variations, like Herbal Lemonade, Ginger Lemonade, or Lavender Lemonade ....mmmmmm!
