1 Cup sugar

4 Cups boiling water........dissolve the sugar in the water, cool.

Then add 3/4 Cup fresh lemon juice and 1 Tablespoon grated rind...do not grate the pith (white) or it will be bitter. Freeze in a tray, stirring the crystals about every now and then lest the ice freeze rock solid. When it's frozen scoop into little pleated cups and enjoy!

It comes closest to the lemon ice we had in Brooklyn when I was a little girl.

A note: This will also be nice after a fish dish in the course of a meal.
