Lynn demonstrates how to make a delicious, refreshing Peach Lemonade that is perfect for this time of year when peaches are in season. From Cooking Light and Pinterest.
In a medium saucepan, add the peaches, water and sugar. Bring to a boil over medium high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 3 minutes.
Very carefully, our mixture into a blender or food processor and let stand for approximately 20 minutes.
If using a blender, take the center out of the lid and place lid tightly on blender, covering the top with a kitchen towel. Blend or process until smooth. Pour into a large container and refrigerate peach puree for approximately 3 hours. If preparing a day ahead, you can refrigerate overnight.
After the peach puree has chilled, press the mixture through a sieve into a large container, reserving the liquid and discarding the solids. Pour peach juice into a pitcher and add the lemon juice. Stir until combined. Taste and add ¼ - ½ cup water to dilute if too concentrated.
Serve by pouring approximately 2/3 cup of peach lemonade in a small glass over approximately ½ cup of ice. Garnish with a peach wedge, if desired.
