The Pie Hole: Seeing Things Through Strawberry Colored Glasses.

In Pie Holeby Quiet Lunch

We know, we know, winter is still in full swing, and the signs of spring are a long way off–but when we saw PBS Food suggest a Strawberry Lemonade recipe by Jenna Weber of Fresh Tastes, we began daydreaming of fresh flowers and warm breezes. Consider it premature, but the groundhog did predict an early spring. Maybe this Strawberry Lemonade will come in handy sooner than we think?

Ingredients.↓

• 1 cup sugar
• 1 cup water
• 1 ¼ cups fresh lemon juice (from about 6 lemons)
• 1 pint strawberries, hulled and sliced
• 24-28 oz fresh cold water
• ice

Directions.↓

Bring the sugar and water to a simmer in a small saucepot. Stir so that sugar melts completely then remove from the heat and let cool to room temperature.

Place the strawberries in a blender and process until smooth. Pour pureed strawberries in the sugar water and stir well. Add the lemon juice.
Combine the strawberry lemon syrup and the cold water in a large pitcher. Stir well and add lots of ice.

Serve lemonade with thin slices of lemons and strawberries.
