Free Food (it's not) Friday

Our family favourite drink over the Summer ... Lemon Balm Lemonade from Jane Newdicks's Book of Herbs.

Easy to make and so freshing.
Into a bowl - zest of 4 lemons, huge handfuls of lemon balm leaves - torn to release flavour, sugar to suit your taste.
Pour in enough hot water to cover and then leave to infuse.
Juice the lemons and add when you feel ready.
Use as a cordial, making up with fizzy water and sprigs of lemon balm.

That sounds superb!
And as my lemon balm is currently growing like billyo I think this is going on my menu!

Are you coming over to the duck races btw? Some of my friends are coming over for a picnic before the races commence on Saturday!
