Strawberry Lemonade



3 Cups Water
2 Cups sugar
2 Cup Strawberries, hulled & sliced into quarters
 
3 - 5 Lemons to create:
3/4 Cup of Fresh Lemon Juice 
Rind of one lemon, peeled
 
 
In a medium saucepan, over medium heat, add 3 cups of water.
 
 
Peel the rind from one lemon and juice your lemons

to make 3/4 cup of fresh lemon juice; set aside.
 
 
Add the lemon rind and sugar to your pot of water and bring it to a boil. 

Boil for two more minutes.
 
Add one cup of strawberries to the sugar mixture.

The strawberries will begin to turn soft.

Take a wooden spoon and smash the strawberries 
against the side of the pot to incorporate them into the sugar mixture.

Turn the heat down and simmer for two more minutes.

Remove the saucepan from the heat and let the mixture cool.

Using a fine strainer; strain your sugar mixture into a pitcher.


Add the remaining cup of strawberries and pour the lemonade into a
pitcher and place in the refrigerator to chill.
 
 
My husband is a fan of strawberry lemonade, 
which makes him a harsh critique, 
and I am happy to say this recipe passed his test and I quote,

"Mmmm, this is REALLY good!"
 
Top it off with a sliced strawberry 
and you will impress the thirsty masses of loved ones.
