When you are King, dilly dilly,
I shall be Queen.
I found a recipe in an old Better Homes & Gardens Magazine that sounded intriging, it also reminded me of a song my Gram would sing to me.
Lavender Blue Lemonade
Juice from 4 lg lemons- about 1 cup- save rinds
4c. boiling water
1t. dried lavender buds- I put mine in a tea ball
Gently mash the blue berries in a 4qt heat proof pitcher or bowl. Add in the lemon juice, sugar and stir. Steep the lavender in the hot water for about 5min. Add to your lemon mixture, stir to dissolve sugar. Add in the reserved lemon rinds, cover and chill over night. Pour through a mesh strainer and serve over ice.
This was pretty tasty, the kiddos & I enjoyed it. I liked the lavender & lemon flavors together, next time I want to try this without the blueberries.
