Lime Syrup

On Pinterest, I found a recipe for Old Fashioned Lemonade from The Anne of Green Gables Cookbook. For this delicious lemonade, you make a lemon syrup, the add water and ice to each serving. Mmmm. . .

Limes were on sale, it's the perfect opportunity to make lime syrup. There are some many things I can do with it: Limeade (of course), Cherry Limeade Slush, Lime Blended Float, or a Creamy Raspberry Limeade Smoothie. Woo hoo!

Lime Syrup

1 ½ cups sugar
1 ½ cups water
Zest from one lime
1 ½ cups fresh lime juice

Measure the sugar and water into a sauce pan. While stirring with a wooden spoon, bring the mixture to a boil for 5 minutes. Remove the saucepan from the heat. Let cool slightly.

Add fresh squeezed lime juice and lime zest to the sugar syrup. Cool completely. Pour the limeade syrup into a quart jar. Cover tightly with the lid. The syrup can be kept in the refrigerator for 2 or 3 weeks. Makes 14 glasses of limeade.
