My Home Izakaya; Make Lemon Sour With Homemade Lemon Syrup

lemon sour with homemade lemon syrup Food & Recipes

I heard that lemon sour is still very popular in Japan, but today there is a new lemon sour called “Hakko Lemon Sour” that uses “fermented lemon”.

I was very curious and couldn’t stop myself to make homemade fermented lemon, however, I failed somehow.

Although it didn’t come out as “Hakko lemon” but I got a delicious homemade lemon syrup.

I am not going to talk about “lemon syrup” much, but this little information may help you.

  1. Use organic non-wax lemons because this recipe use whole lemons.
  2. Sanitize a jar with boiling it or use boiled water
  3. Use sugar that you already have in your kitchen. I use brown raw sugar. (If you want vivid lemon yellow color in the syrup, use white sugar.)
