Aunt Frances' Lemonade

 Aunt Frances' Lemonade
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.
