This homemade goodness is definitely worth to be called LEMON AID! It’s tasty with hot and cold water and works perfectly against colds. Add hot ginger water and you will even increase the cold fighting effect.
5 organically grown lemons (peels must be unwaxed)
3 organically grown limes (peels unwaxed)
400g cane sugar ( I used the palm sugar cones I brought from Bali)
1 or 2 twigs of fresh rosemary
Wash lemons and limes. Fill lemons, limes and sugar in a bowl and rub the fruit with the sugar to release their essential oils. Pour boiling water onto the fruit and sugar and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Let it cool down. Take the fruit out of the syrup and juice it. Add the juice and the rosemary to the syrup. Cover the mixture and let it rest in the fridge overnight. Next morning you can strain it into bottles. The lemon syrup can be stored in the fridge up to 4 days.
