4 Lemon Gallon O' Lemonade

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Karen..

This is the greatest lemonade I ever had and lemonade is my favorite drink! You actually get an entire gallon of lemonade out of 4 large lemons. It is a little more work than traditional lemonade recipes, but TOTALLY worth it! A gallon does not last 24 hours in our house!

I'm so sorry...I found the same problem too. I would love to try this using maybe 6 lemons. I too like the boiling water concept and the idea of homemade lemonade is wonderful. Maybe in the summer I'll try this using 6 lemons and a little less sugar maybe. Lemons are just too expensive right now.
