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.

"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."
