Ingredients

  • 6 lemons
  • 4 sprigs of rosemary
  • 1 Cup sugar
  • 6 Cups water

Directions

In a small pan, combine 1 ½ cups water with 1 cup sugar. Cook over a medium heat, stirring constantly, until the sugar dissolves. Turn off the heat and drop in 1 sprig of rosemary. Set aside to cool. Once cool, remove the rosemary sprig.

Juice the lemons. In a large pitcher, combine the lemon juice, sugar water, and remaining 4 ½ cups water. Stir together. Serve over ice, garnished with a few lemon slices, and the remaining rosemary sprigs.

Rosemary Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age.

Rosemary Cooking Tip

Different vegetables have different cooking times – cook each type separately and then combine.
