Method:  Cut the lemon fruits into halves, squeeze and extract the juice. Remove the seeds. Take care not to squeeze the lemon skin too much, lest the juice will have slight bitter taste. This recipe is for 200ml of lemon extract.

Now add 200ml of lemon extract to the sugar syrup and mix very well. Heat the mixture on a low flame just for a minute. Cool and store in a bottle. Refregirate and use lemon juice concentrate as and when needed.
