Strawberry Lemonade

This is a great lemonade recipe.  Lemons and strawberries go beautifully together, just like raspberries and lemon.  You can do this with almost any berry by swapping out one berry for another.  How about blueberries? 

2 cups sugar
2 cups strawberries
2 cups fresh lemon juice (from about 10 large lemons)
1/4 teaspoon salt

Lemon syrup
Combine 1 ½ cups sugar, lemon juice and 1 ½ cups of water in saucepan.  Bring it to a boil and stir until the sugar completely dissolves.  Cool the syrup. 

Strawberry syrup
Toss the strawberries and the remaining 1/2 cup sugar in a bowl in a blender.  Strain through a sieve.

Combine the lemon juice, lemon syrup, strawberry syrup, salt and 2 cups cold water in a pitcher. 

Add some lemon slices to the pitcher.  Pour over ice and garnish if you like.  A mason jar is just perfect for a large cold glass of lemonade. 

Stay cool today.  Be happy and may God bless you and yours.
