“State Fair” Lemonade – Best Lemonade Ever – Food Wishes ctm magazine

I used to think there were only two kinds of the lemonade. The stuff you make by mixing packaged powder and water, and actual lemonade, made with freshly squeezed lemon juice and sugar. Then, you learn about a third kind. The best kind. This kind. Enjoy!

    Boil the water then pour it into the bowl with the peels and sugar. Stir a bit and let it cool. Add the juice and strain into your pitcher. Same ingredients but a simpler method. I use the electric tea kettle to boil the water.

    Lemonade is so so tasty

  • HLG_TheShepherd on August 28, 2021

    Serious question, can this recipe be swapped for limes? Of not what is the best way to make limeade instead of lemonade? Thank you

  • Marcus on August 30, 2021

    At <4:13> you said, "after making lemonade this way it is virtually impossible to go back to making lemonade the way you used to". I made a pitcher the way you demonstrated it on your video every week for three weeks. On the fourth week I was pressed for time and made it the way I used to make it: a cup of sugar, a cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice, and roughly 5 to 6 cups of water; never again, it was awful. Your way is absolutely fabulous,….I'm sold. Thx.

  • M. Lindsey on August 30, 2021

    Could we do this method with any citrus?

  • I'm Onya Food on August 31, 2021

    Gonna use this for my daughters lemonade stand this weekend

  • hotlavatube on August 31, 2021

    I tried this recipe with clementines peels/juice and it worked well, but I had to add juice from 2 lemons and 1 tbsp of citric acid to give it a nice tang, since I didn't have enough lemon juice.

  • Paul King on September 2, 2021

    Add a shot of Good Tequila and I'm a happy man 😋

  • Jor dan on September 3, 2021

    How much sugar?

  • Amar Singh on September 3, 2021

    My son and I made this. It is indeed the best lemonade we’ve ever had. Thank you!

  • hope and grace Tompkins on September 3, 2021

    I made it this way it was delicious I I'm going to actually tweak it a little bit by grating the zest off the lemons and see if maybe the lemon flavor that you're talking about is stronger that way and drain it after I put in warm .
    My neighbors daughter loves my lemonade. It helped her feel better when she had the virus.
    **Very good to build immune system

  • M. Lindsey on September 9, 2021

    1:25…haha can you can this…pull it out whenever…or letting this go further will not work the same way…like marmalade without the jelled part…what’s that preserves…what it’s called with a citrus…

  • Norma Durr on September 10, 2021

    Perfect. Thank you.

  • Alex DeSario on September 10, 2021

  • Raccoon on September 14, 2021

    absolutely delicious – this tastes better two days after being made, and if anyone can find sweet lemons, it is even better

  • I am Here on September 22, 2021

  • Carly Hamilton on September 28, 2021

    … that oleo-saccharum thing give me an idea.

    What if you just took that sugar and used it to make lemon cookies?

  • big green on September 30, 2021

    Can you smoke this I was curious would you smoke the whole lemon or the peels and oily sugar stuff or both

  • Mike The Slagatron on October 4, 2021

    Hello Chef John, can limeys use limes instead of lemons to prepare limeade? Thanks

  • MsLissyD on October 14, 2021

    Chef john is the best 🙌

  • OzarkNFOO on October 16, 2021


  • wackywankavator on October 17, 2021

    How much does the recipe require the sugar liquifying with the lemon peels? I had smaller lemons, but kept things mostly the same. The sugar is damp but not liquid. Is the liquidity an important part of the taste?

  • K Sinclair-Garcia on October 22, 2021

    I'm making this today!!! Thank you so much!

  • Quagmire on October 27, 2021

  • JuJu Bee on December 4, 2021

    Making this lemonade for the second time! I love it , I followed Chef Johns video to the T.

  • GunsNstuff on December 11, 2021

    I never thought state fair lemonade was that good anyways. Over priced too.

    It may seem great because you’re thirsty, hot, and you see the lemons on display…etc.

  • PetertheRock on December 23, 2021

    I mince the rind ( absolutely no pith) and throw it in for extra zip and it is dynomite !
