My aunt made this for me when I was visiting Lebanon in 2003. It was hot hot hot, even up on the mountain. I think she could see how much I wanted something more than the Tang-like powdered mango drink they kept feeding us. She got a whole bunch of oranges, lemons and a knife and set to work.
5 lb bag oranges
3 lb bag lemons
2 cups sugar
Wash and cut up lemons and oranges into small pieces–rinds on. Put them in a huge bowl with the sugar over the top. Stick your hands in there and squeeze all the fruit. Let it sit on the counter for an hour. Remove rinds, squeezing out any remaining juice. Fish out seeds or strain. Mix well. Refrigerate. Serve cold.
