Basil infused lemonade

Got lots a basil and a few lemons still on the tree then this a great refreshing drink for summer.

Add about a cup of water and a handful of fresh basil to the juice and zest of each lemon used. Blitz in blender and sweeten to taste (blitzing again to blend the sugar or honey)

Pour over ice or chill in a pitcher. Drink neat or added to some vodka

Missing in action

Well it has been a while since last post hasn't it! Bit of a distraction finding a new job unfortunately. But I am back and hoping to get back to blogging again.

In my garden the tomatoes are ripe and tasty, the basil is trying to flower (pick regular!) and just had my first cucumber.

As we move into August the early season apples are in season so get your one a day. Planning on making scrumpy cider this year a throw back from my roots created from the orchards of Cupertino.
