Lemons – they are so refreshing, and they make everything taste better. They enjoy a good hug and love to get squeezed. Perfect for picnics and family reunions, fresh Lemonade is a Southern Classic. Reserve some of the beverage for later – as they make terrific frozen ice cubes, popsicles and slushies! If you have a choice between store-bought and homemade, choose the latter – there is a big difference!
