My mum used to make this for me when I was a kid. She would use lemons, oranges or a mix of both, but I prefer just lemons. The recipe suggests 1 cup of the syrup to 2 or 3 cups of water or ginger ale, but I think you need to mix it to your liking.
- Put sugar and water in saucepan, heat enough to dissolve the sugar.
- Pour over shredded rind and allow to cool.
- Strain and add juice.
- Dilute to taste.
