    My daughters and I made this and it was awesome. Instead of boiling the water and sugar mixture on the stove I put it in the microwave for 1min. when done I added some ice to cool it down so it did not take long to make at all. Very refreshing.  -  10 May 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This one's a keeper. Yes, it is labor intensive. Hey, you might even build up your triceps with all that lemon twisting action - but, if you have the time, the effort is well worth it. This recipe IS quite sweet, so if your tastes preference runs closer to tart, go easy on the sugar. I needed six or seven lemons to make 1 1/2 cups of lemon juice.  -  08 Jun 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    YUM! This was so good! And it did not take 4 hours to make, even though I squeezed all the lemons by hand since I didn't have a juicer. The trick is to soak the lemons in hot water for 10 mins and roll each lemon on the counter before you cut and squeeze. I only used 1 1/4 C of sugar and added a little more water. Very good recipe! Thanks Jo!  -  23 Jun 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
