2 cups Fresh Orange Juice
2 cups Fresh Lemon Juice
Grated Orange Peels
4 1/2 cup Sugar
Grate the peels of the oranges and put in a cheesecloth bag. Juice the oranges and lemons. Soak the peels in the juices for 10 minutes and wring out, squeezing as much of the moisture and oils from the peel. Mix the juice and sugar together in a large pot and bring to a boil. Cook, stirring just until all the sugar has dissolved. Store the concentrate in glass bottles in the refrigerator. When ready to serve, add 1/8 to 1/4 cup of the concentrate to enough ice cold water to made a full glass. Garnish with mint. When frozen, this also makes a refreshing sherbet.
