This is turning into a recipe blog rather than an unschooling blog! Anyway, I’ve been experimenting the last several weeks with making lemonade. So far, this recipe is the one that always gets finished off quickly, with children wanting to know when it will be cold enough to drink!

Lemonade – For 1 Quart

  • 4 cups water
  • 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Mix water, sugar and salt in large saucepan. Boil 2 minutes. Chill.

    When cooled, add:

  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • sliced strawberries as desired.
  • Chill

    I’ve discovered if I add the strawberries to the sugar water as it comes off the stove and begins to cool, that the lemonade has a much stronger strawberry flavor. I also add a lemon when I add the lemon juice, slicing it and squeezing some of the juice into the lemonade as I add the slices.

    I made some Granola Bars yesterday that the boys loved. Unfortunately, they didn’t hold together at all. They were great to eat and would be wonderful with yogurt or ice cream or even with milk and eat it like cereal, but as a bar they were a flop. I used spelt flour instead of wheat flour, so maybe that had something to do with the consistency. Or maybe I need to use more honey to hold them together. The pan will be empty by the end of today, so I’ll be able to try again! At least it is one way to get Charles to eat more oats!
