While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday and the most delicious finds on TV.
Pucker up, it's National Lemonade Day - an occassion to celebrate those budding entrepreneurs taking a stand at the end of the driveway.
To make the most of your squeeze, we're big fans of taking the simple syrup route instead of plain ol' sugar - there's less grit. Bring one part white sugar and one part water to a boil, stir until the sugar has dissolved and set aside to cool. Add freshly-squeezed lemon juice and cold water to taste, et voila!
And if you're into these sort of things, try our heirloom tomato lemonade. A little rye never hurt anyone.
