This is a recipe I enjoyed even before I found out I have Fructose Malabsorption. All I had to do was swap sugars! Delightful!!!
- 6 lemons or 1 cup of organic lemon juice
- 1/2 cup of cranberry juice
- 1 cup of water
- 1 1/2 cups of dextrose
- 4-5 cups of cold water
Put the 1 cup of water and 1 1/2 cups of sugar in a pot on the stove at medium heat, stirring occasionally until the sugar has dissolved.
Meanwhile, juice lemons until you have 1 cup of juice. I wish I had a citrus press for this reason, because doing it by hand is a pain, but all I have is an old-fashioned glass juicer (I use a mesh strainer to get rid of the pulp). Whatever–it works.
Pour sugar mixture into a glass pitcher or other heat-proof container, and immediately add cold water, lemon juice, and cranberry juice.
If you have a lemon left over, wash the outside and cut it into slices and add to the pitcher. Store in the fridge.
