Lemon squash

1 orange
3 lemons
3 pints of water
4 lbs sugar (or less?)
2 oz (50g) citric acid (or less)
1 oz (25g) tartaric acid (or less)


  1. Put the sugar and salts in a large plastic bowl
  2. Pour boiling water onto the sugar and salts
  3. Stir till dissolved.
  4. Grate the rind of the fruits.
  5. Squeeze the fruits and add the juice to the bowl
  6. Leave overnight.
  7. Strain into a jug and pour into bottles using a funnel
Ordinary bottles will do, but make sure they are well cleaned. Screw the tops on.

Use as squash, diluting with water. It keeps well.
