    This recipe sounds great, I will be making it tommorrow for my kids but mixing spendia and sugar, instead of just sugar. And I like 53PINKROSES idea of using the peels as the and vitamins and nutrients for the kids. - 1/29/09

    Wow, this is really strong lemonade! -But more nutrients, of course, p/serving. Another way to make it is to put the whole lemon(w/o seeds but including peels)into a blender, blend for at least 1 min, then strain. Your nutrients will prbly be at least doubled! It's called Swiss Lemonade like this. - 1/26/09

    I use the same recipe for limes as well as lemons. I substitute the sugar for stevia or erythritol. For those with low-carb lifestyles or diabetics, this would have way too much sugar. - 1/26/09

    Used the Splenda instead of sugar, really good but lemons are too expensive to make it too often - 1/26/09
