My sister and I spent a week each summer with Aunt Frances, who always had this thirst-quenching lemonade in a stoneware crock in the refrigerator. It tastes so much like fresh citrus. It made such a refreshing drink after a hot day running around the farm. -Debbie Reinhart, New Cumberland, PA.

Like others who rated "Aunt Frances' Lemonade" before me have said - this refreshing drink was worth the effort>

Since there's just 2 of us, I scaled back the recipe .. .. .. and it worked beautifully!

My kids LOVE this. They often request it .The only suggestion I have, is if you have leftovers remove the slices of fruit. Otherwise the lemonade becomes bitter from the peels.
