if you missed the post about picking strawberries at Sweet Berry Farm … see below.
So, the drive home from Sweet Berry resulted in my two sweet children napping. And that meant that as soon as we walked in the door Sabrina was ready to DO something with our strawberries. She wanted to start with strawberry lemonade … and then chocolate covered strawberries … and then strawberry cupcakes … and, and, and.
So, we started with the strawberry lemonade recipe from Epicurious. It was OOOOH so very yummy.
Here is the recipe if you want to try it!
1/2 lb strawberries (1 1/2 cups), trimmed and halved
1 1/2 cups fresh lemon juice (from about 5 lemons)
1 to 1 1/2 cups sugar
3 cups water
Purée strawberries with 2 tablespoons lemon juice in a blender until smooth, then force through a fine sieve into a bowl to remove seeds. Stir together strawberry purée, remaining lemon juice, 1 cup sugar, and water in a large pitcher until sugar is dissolved. Taste, then add more sugar if desired. Serve over ice.
