MISS AIMEE B'S SPECIAL LEMONADE
2 medium lemons
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 pint milk
Wash the lemons, cut off the ends and quarter them. Hand squeeze the juice from the lemons into a bowl. In either a blender or food processor, coarsely chop the lemons. Do not puree! Add the coarsely chopped lemons to the bowl with the juice. Next add the 1 1/2 cups sugar, stir well and let the mixture set for 30 minutes. This allows the sugar to pull the juices out of the lemons. Finally, add the 2 cups milk. Stir well again. Cover and refrigerate several hours or overnight.
To serve, strain the concentrate to remove the rinds and seeds. Fill a glass with 1/2 cup lemonade mixture, 1/2 cup club soda and 1/2 cup crushed ice. Stir well. Serves 6.
