I love lemonade, especially one made from scratch. You can adjust the sugar to your sweetness. Cook time includes chilling time.
- Stir together sugar and 1/2 cup boiling water until sugar dissolves.
- Stir in lemon rind, lemon juice and 5 cups cold water.
- Pour into a 2 quart pitcher.
- Chill 8 hours.
- Garnish with lemon slices.
- Serve over ice.
