In a small saucepan, heat 1 cup water with the sugar until sugar is dissolved.
Refrigerate until cold.
Combine sugar syrup with lemon juice, cold water and blend together thoroughly.
Pour into a freezer-safe container, such as a 9 x 13 x 2-inch metal pan.
Freeze, stirring and scraping the mixture with a rubber spatula at first, then
with the tines of a fork every 30 to 40 minutes until a grainy consistency and
completely frozen. This process takes 3 to 4 hours.
Spoon into chilled stemmed glasses or bowls.
Makes 7 cups.
* For the best flavor, always use freshly squeezed lemon juice.
