Homemade Lemonade Recipe

In a saucepan, combine sugar and 2 cups of water over medium heat.

While stirring, bring to a boil until the sugar has dissolved. Gently chill the item off the heat to ambient temperature.

The lemon juice should be strained into a 2-quart receptacle using a fine-mesh sieve.
