Homemade Lemonade Famous Five Style – by Helen at Novelicious


It’s spring now (or soon depending on how you define it!) and what better to drink on a warm day than a glass of lemonade?

You don’t have to get far into a Famous Five book to find a reference to homemade lemonade. There is something gloriously old-fashioned about the drink and it’s enjoying a bit of a revival…

People are eschewing processed cuisine and wanting fresher, more natural food. Food like the Famous Five would have on the table, which is why I come back to their books time and time again. Enid Blyton’s descriptions always inspire me to recreate the food, or the drink, mentioned within the pages for my own family.

You can read what else Helen has to say over at Novelicious and maybe even use the recipe there to make your very own lemonade!

    Yes, sounds delicious. But for those without the time to make it themselves (or just too lazy) look out for Great Uncle Cornelius’ Lemon Refresher made in Suffolk: http://www.jameswhite.co.uk/cornelius/. They also do a Ginger Refresher. Or, possibly even better, Rieme Boissons’ Reines des Limonades La Mortuacienne Citron Limonade Artisanale (French, obviously, but available in Britain and elsewhere): http://www.rieme-boissons.fr/

    Either is perfect for a picnic and, as someone famously said, food (and drink) always tastes so much better outdoors.
