Sumer Camp: Lemonade Stand!
This week was all about experimenting with soda syrups, making water kefir, and developing recipes for baked goods to sell at our stand on Friday! Thanks to our campers hard work, and excellent sales skills, we raised $155 for C.H.A.P. and Zenger Farm. Way to go!
Below are some of the many recipes we made this week. Most of the drink recipes (including the fruit syrups, Sour Cherry Cola, and Root Beers) came from an excellent cookbook, called Homemade Sodas. If there is a particular recipe that your camper wants to recreate at home, but you don’t see it below, please email us and we’ll make sure to share the recipe. Happy cooking!
