 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    4                    Lemons, juiced thoroughly
    1       c            Sugar
    1       tb           Lemon rind, grated--opt.
                         Ice cubes
   NOTE:  I use a high powered blender called a VITA MIX to make this
 recipe.   Take your chances if you use a regular blender, as chopping the
 ice may be   too much for it to handle.  If you do use a regular blender
 be sure to add   the ice cubes one at a time. Put your lemon juice and
 sugar in the blender   container.  Blend until sugar is dissolved. Do not
 wait until after the ice   is put in to dissolve the sugar as it will not
 dissolve completely. While   blender is running add ice cubes until the
 mixture turns to a slush and it   cannot be blended anymore.  It may take
 several times of stopping and   allowing the mixture to settle or stirring
 it and then blending again. Just   be sure the mixture is thick and
 slushy.  You may want to adjust the taste   with more sugar or lemon to
 your liking, but I found this to be just right   for our family.  Put
 mixture into individual freezer containers and place   in the freezer for
 at least four hours.  Voila!  Authentic Italian Ice! Do   not substitute
 lemon concentrate as it does not give the same taste result.   Hope you
 like it.  This is one of my originals.
