Boil about 7 minutes. Cool. Add: 1 cup lemon juice (5 to 6 lemons) 4 cups ice water Pour over ice in pitcher or tall glasses. Yields about 6 to 8 servings. Alterations: Minted Lemonade: Place bruised mint leaves in bottom of glasses before adding Lemonade. Garnish each glass with a sprig of mint. (If you grew up in the 50's, you might find this mint growing in your garden.))) Pink Lemonade: Add a little grenadine syrup. Pineapple Lemonade: Follow receipt above but use 1 qt water and 1 1/2 cups sugar for the syrup. Add 2 cups crushed pineapple with 1 1/2 cups of lemon juice. Garnish each glass with a sprig of mint.
