Directions:
Make sure lemons are at room temperature. Roll each lemon on countertop, pressing hard, before cutting in half. Twist each half of lemon on "juicer" (set on top of 1 gallon pitcher) to extract juice, making sure that the seeds do not get into the juice. Heat 1 gallon of water to almost boiling. Add sugar, stirring until sugar dissolves. Add lemon halves to water and allow to cool. Fill pitcher with lemon juice with ice. Pour sugar mixture over ice and juice, stirring well.

Personal Notes:
There is nothing quite like a glass of homemade lemonade on a hot summer's day! My Grandma and my Aunt Jewell always made it from "scratch".
I, of course, use Crystal Light mix - which is good.
But I intend to have my grandchildren help me squeeze the lemons to make Real Old-Fashioned Southern Lemonade!
