My daughters and I made this and it was awesome. Instead of boiling the water and sugar mixture on the stove I put it in the microwave for 1min. when done I added some ice to cool it down so it did not take long to make at all. Very refreshing.
This was good but a little heavy on the sugar - it was almost sickeningly sweet.
This one's a keeper. Yes, it is labor intensive. Hey, you might even build up your triceps with all that lemon twisting action - but, if you have the time, the effort is well worth it. This recipe IS quite sweet, so if your tastes preference runs closer to tart, go easy on the sugar. I needed six or seven lemons to make 1 1/2 cups of lemon juice.
YUM! This was so good! And it did not take 4 hours to make, even though I squeezed all the lemons by hand since I didn't have a juicer. The trick is to soak the lemons in hot water for 10 mins and roll each lemon on the counter before you cut and squeeze. I only used 1 1/4 C of sugar and added a little more water. Very good recipe! Thanks Jo!
I live in Venezuela, where lemons are virtually nonexistent, so I decided to adapt this recipe to make "limeade", with very pleasant results. I used 10 limes to make 1 1/2 cups of juice, added the juice to the syrup mix after it had cooled just slightly, immediately transferred the mixture to a one-gallon pitcher, and topped it off with cold water. The whole procedure took less than ten minutes, and made a very nice alternative to the usual lemonade.
Truly the best lemonade. I added a pint of smashed strawberries to make a wonderful strawberry lemonade!
Very, very good lemonade Jo. I actually made a cherry limeade by using half limes and adding cherry juice at the end. My 4 year old loved it. Highly recommended. Thanks for sharing.
This was wonderful! I served it at a Mother's Day barbeque, and everyone loved it.
Since it was served in a large clear container, I floated two lemons sliced into rounds, and also half a bunch of fresh mint leaves. Very pretty, and the mint added a nice touch of flavor.

The key to this lemonade is keeping the lemon pulp. Yum!
