Number 3 of my presents 🙂
- 9 organic lemons
- 3-5 organic oranges
- 1 l water
- 2 kgs sugar
- 10-15 g citric acid
- some cinammon, 5 cloves
Peel the washed fruits and make juice, put all in a pot to cook for 10 Min.
let cool and wait 5-10 hours, drain through a cloth and get approx. 1 liter juice. Add water and sugar and citric acid and cook for another 5 Min. Fill very hot in clean bottles.
Fill the bottles very full. After building up a vacuum, the syrup will retire.
