Before I started blogging again I made some salted lemons. I used this [the linked post is not published yet] recipe. I gave away half to my sister and keep finding ways to use them so I know I will be making them again and blogging about how easy they are make.
Salted lemonade is one of those things that sounds both scary and potentially different (in a wonderful way). I finally figured out a similar flavor…margarita(ish) – with the salted rim! Don’t take this comparison too literally though; at best it is an approximation.
Summer is LONG in the South and I simply cannot abide tea for 8 months of the year. So, I need some easy options. I have posted about the Lemon, Cucumber, Mint water. This is another even easier option which is also delicious and refreshing.
Ingredients1 salted lemon salted lemon juice water sugar
- Put one salted lemon in the bottom of your glass.
- Add sugar, water, and salted lemon juice to taste. My glass needed about 1 teaspoon juice and sugar when I filled it to near the top with water.
You will find that the seeds don’t float so there is no need to fish them out.
A friend (without any sort of palette – southern, over cooked veggies, etc) suggested that this tastes like an accidental gulp of ocean water!
