Solomon's Iced Lemon Syrup!

Wonderfully refreshing for the weather we are supposed to be experiencing this time of the year!
Lemon Syrup!
Woodall Lemon Syrup!
Rind of 6 lemons
Juice of 12 lemons
6 cups of sugar
6 cups of boiling water

Boil everything together. Let it stand over night. Strain and dilute with water.
Serve chilled with sliced lemons and mint leaves.

Served on a beautiful dish with another favourite...koeksisters!

And what a combination, these beautiful orange and lemon poppies.

On my favourite chair in the sun...

 So refreshing!

Have a happy day!
