My Home Izakaya; Make Lemon Sour With Homemade Lemon Syrup

Lemon sour is still popular in Japan, but recently a new lemon sour called “HAKKO LEMOU SOUR” made of “fermented lemon” has appeared.

I tried to make “fermented lemon” but my attempt failed.

When I was looking at these poor lemons, I hit the idea to make lemon syrup made with only lemons and sugar.

So, I didn’t go with “Hakko Lemon Sour”, but I made the lemons turned into a delicious homemade lemon syrup for those who want to sweeten Japanese lemon sour.

Today, I want to share homemade lemon syrup, and I still want to try making “fermented lemon” someday.

This lemon syrup is really rich and so delicious with natural clean sweetness.

I am not bragging about or blogging about “homemade lemon syrup” deeper because it’s super easy to make and I think it is not so special to talk about.

Grab the organic non-wax lemons or pick up the fresh lemons from your yard, just make this!

  1. Use organic non-wax lemons because this recipe uses whole lemons.
  2. Sanitize a jar by 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.)
