Old-Time Lemonade

3 lemons

1/2 c. sugar

1 qt. water

Wash lemons. Squeeze juice from lemons into a large pitcher. Add sugar; fill pitcher with 1 qt. water. Chop rinds into 8-10 pieces and let soak in lemonade. Stir well until juice gets syrupy. Strain rinds out of juice and refrigerate.

This homemade lemonade was always a big favorite at Buchwalter family picnics and all during the summer. Any time, really. The chopped lemon rinds make all the difference!
