If Life Gives You Lemons, Make Lemonade

Egyptian Food and Recipes

Editor's Note: Lemonade is one of my favorite drinks in Egypt. There is simply something about the way it is made that is different from any other lemonade I have ever tasted.



Jimmy Dunn

Place 6 cups water and 2 unpeeld, quartered lemons in a pot and bring to a boil, then cover and simmer over medium heat for 20 minutes. Strain into a teapot, stir in the 5 tablespoons sugar and 1 tablespoon Orange Blossom Water ( Mazahar ). Bring to a boil and serve.


Add honey instead of sugar for variety.
