Lemon/Lime Syrup – Sharbat-e Limoo

Description

A refreshing home made lemonade. A great way of using lemons or limes from the garden.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups lemon or Lime Juice
  • 4 cups white sugar
  • 1/4 cup Rose Water (optional)

Methods/steps

    1. Combine the juice, sugar and Rose Water if using, in a large heavy saucepan.
    2. Stir over a moderate heat until the sugar is dissolved.
    3. Bring to the boil, and continue to slowly boil for about 20 minutes.
    4. Allow to cool in the saucepan.
    5. Store in sealed bottle.
    6. To serve add iced water to taste. I use about a 1 – 8 syrup to water ratio.

Additional Tips

This recipe is equally delicious with either lemon juice, lime juice or a combination of the two. A little rosewater adds a Persian twist.
