My sister and I spent a week each summer with our Aunt Frances, who always had this thirst-quenching lemonade in a stoneware crock in the refrigerator. It makes a refreshing drink after a hot day of running around. —Debbie Reinhart, New Cumberland, Pennsylvania

"This is the recipe I use. My kids call it Mom's Famous Lemonade! I don't use the fruit for garnish so I only use 4 of each (Sometimes 3 of each because the fruit is kinda big) and if I want to cut back on time or the cost I will use a little frozen orange juice concentrate instead of juicing the oranges. Sorry, I don't have a measured amount of OJ mix to give, I just add and taste."

"This was a great lemonade! I made with 1 1/2 cups sugar and it was plenty sweet. I added some sliced strawberries for color. It was beautiful in my glass pitcher. I am making this again for my next get together. Has anyone tried it with Stevia???? I think I will try it and see how it taste."

"refreshing and easy, but i don't care for the oranges - too sweet. i think less sugar would have helped."

"Would it work to serve this without any sweetener and guests could add sugar or artificial sweetener as they wanted? Sounds like it would be 5 stars."

"This is certainly a nice change from the usual beverages available. We liked it as did our company! I made my husband do the juicing, but it didn't take much time at all."

"I have been making this recipe for years as it was in a Taste of Home magazine from the 1990's.It takes some work, but well worth it! I have requests for it at every summer (and sometimes winter) get together."
