Maple Lemonade

Lemonade made with pure maple syrup is a treat to enjoy. Each of the recipes below makes a quart of lemonade, best enjoyed over large glass of ice, sipped slowly.

Of course, if you have a sweet tooth you may want the lemonade sweeter. It is not as sweet as commercially made lemonade, and you do have to love the heady taste of pure maple syrup. But I have to think if you are here reading, you are passionate about your use of sweeteners.
