Ultimate Strawberry Lemonade

by Laura

Today’s lemonade recipe uses simple ingredients – lemons, strawberries, sugar, and water. Just what homemade lemonade should include.  The process to make the lemonade is what makes it full of flavor.  You use the whole lemon when making this.  It does take time but is well worth the effort. The most time consuming parts are chilling and straining the mixture.

My daughter made this yesterday for Father’s Day and we found that it needed some extra lemon juice and the rinds made it bitter for our taste. Still and all, we’re going to try it again because it was definitely promising. Thanks!

I’m a sucker for a good strawberry lemonade. I don’t think I have a powerful enough blender to grind the lemon rind….

Did you know that you can bottle (can) it and have it year round? Or even freeze it as a concentrate? I didn’t until recently.

So when you say put the lemon pieces in the blender as well, you mean rind and all?
