Lemon celebration

I am celebrating the first warm sunny weekend by making lemonade! Since we were given a bag of lemons, they need to be used. I made lemon ginger scones for breakfast, and I think I will make lemon curd tarts for Valentine's Day. Maybe not traditional, but I can decorate with daffodils which will match the tarts, right? : )

So, lemonade. I have 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice from 3 lemons, 3/4 cup sugar, and the rinds of the lemons macerating for an hour. I discovered this recipe in an old time cookbook years ago and it makes the best lemonade ever. (I just checked and the book  says 1/2 cup sugar to 1 cup juice) In a bit I will add water to make a quart, to pour over a glass of ice.  Happy sunshine!
