This is another great cool summer treat. It is one my grandmother made many times and it is good for kids and adults alike.

I remember sitting on the floor as a young pup, on weekday mornings watching the CBS lineup of comedies. Remember that? Beverly Hillbilles, That Girl, The Lucy Show, Mayberry R.F.D., the Mary Tyler Moore Show....



Pineapple Grape Ice

1 cup sugar
2 cups water
2 cups Welch's 100% grape juice
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 -15.25 oz can crushed pineapple with juice
    Stir sugar and water together over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Let cool and then mix with the remaining ingredients.
    Pour into an aluminum pan or freezer pan. Distribute the pineapple evenly. Cover and freeze overnight.
    Scrape shavings into bowls and enjoy a treat from my younger days.

    Note: Grandmother used regular grape juice but she would frown when it stained my clothes (and the rug). She later started using white grape juice instead.
