Homemade Limeade

There is something that just screams summer about lemonade and limeade. Growing up my family had big summer picnics. My mother was the oldest of 12 so there was always tons of things to eat and drink. To this day I think of my family when I have picnic foods. During the summer I always seem to have a large amount of leftover lemons and limes. More often than not the price of a bag of limes is less than buying 3 or 4 individually. So I buy the bag and then I have 7 limes leftover after I make my recipes for the week. Too many times I have just let them go bad on the counter. Then last year I thought to myself, what a waste. So I made limeade. It was refreshing and a wonderful way to use leftover limes. Last week I tried a new recipe for Limeade from Martha Stewart.

This recipe has 3 ingredients. It takes 10 minutes of total time, all of which is active and makes 6 servings. I only made a few changes to the original recipe. I used a juicer for the limes, my hands aren't that strong. For the sweetener I used sugar. I found that only using 1/2 cup of sugar wasn't as sweet as I would prefer so I added 1/4 cup more. The recipe would also work very well with honey.

I am a big fan of limeade. This recipe had a nice tart and sweet combination. I was a big fan of this recipe, my kids liked it, but they preferred the homemade lemonade that I made the day before. If you like your limeade sweet, I would suggest adding more sugar. If you like it more on the tart side than I would follow the recipe as written.

For the recipe go to Homemade Limeade.
