Aunt Frances' Lemonade Recipe

Publisher Photo
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.

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.
