nana's lemonade..

today was yom kippur.. we started fasting last night at around 5pm until around 6pm today.. i live a half hour walk away from my grandmother's place so i missed the breaking of the fast but i did get some of my grandmother's lemonade which for me is liquid heaven..

for one litre she puts 3 generous spoons of sugar two fresh lemons squeezed and a whopping dash of rose water (mayet zahar).. its the best! its not the ingredients though.. my gran (who i have always called "nana") loves preparing it and when she serves it her heart goes out to you.. i love my nana.. ;)

Even if it actually doesn't taste good, you won't notice it as one of your loved ones has made it!

I'm sure nana's magic touch was better then all the ingredients.

Lirun.. happy Yom Kippur. Hope you enjoy your fast :)

Yummy! I like limeade best, and back home they make it with a pinch of (foul)smelling rock salt (kaala namak)and call it Shakanjabeen.
But its a great thirst quencher, and my other fave remains chilled sugar cane juice.
Happy Yom Kippur Lirun.
