Lemon - Flavored Mead
What You Need:
  • 2 large lemons
  • ˝ cup granulated sugar
  • ˝ cup brown sugar
  • 5 quarts boiling water
  • 1/8 teaspoon yeast
  • 5 teaspoons sugar
  • 15 raisins

  • How To Cook:
    1. With a small, sharp knife or rotary peeler, carefully peel off the yellow skins of the lemons and set them aside. Then cut away the white membranes of the lemons and discard them.

    2. Slice the lemons very thinly. In a 6- to 8-quart enameled or stainless-steel bowl, combine the lemon slices, lemon skins and the two sugars. Pour the boiling water over the fruit and sugar, stir, and let the mixture cool to tepid.

    3. Then stir in the yeast. Allow the "Sima" to ferment, uncovered, at room temperature for about 12 hours. To bottle, use 5 one-quart bottles with very tight covers or corks.

    4. Place 1 teaspoon of sugar and 3 raisins in the bottom of each bottle. Strain the "Sima" through a sieve and, using a funnel, pour the liquid into the bottles.

    5. Close the bottles tightly and let them stand at room temperature for 1 or 2 days until the raisins have risen to the surface. Chill the sealed bottles until ready to serve.

    To Make: 5 quarts
