Table Talk » Local strawberries + lemons = berrylicious pink slip lemonade

I'm having lots of fun developing recipes for The Career Change Financial Planner blog's Pink Slip Lemonade month. Since local strawberries are abundant right now, this week's recipe is a berrylicious pink slip lemonade. My strawberries came from my favorite local farm: Sunnycrest Farm. It was hard to not eat them on the way home.


Besides the strawberries, you need 4-6 lemons, 1/2 cup sugar, and water. That's all. Oh, and a blender. I got to use my 50+ year old Oster blender. It's one of my prized possessions. My parents got it as a wedding gift in 1956. My mom gave it to me when I went to college.


Toss some lemon juice and strawberries in the blender. Strain that mixture. Add some sugar and water. And you have Berrylicious Pink Slip Lemonade.


Berrylicious Pink Slip Lemonade
makes 1 1/2-2 quarts

1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice, 4-6 lemons
1 1/2 cups sliced strawberries
1/2 cup sugar
5 cups water
lemon slices, for garnishing

In a blender, puree the lemon juice and strawberries.

Strain berry mixture through fine mesh strainer.

Combine berry mixture and sugar and stir until sugar is dissolved. Add water and stir to combine. Pour into a pitcher and refrigerate until ready to serve. Garnish with lemon slices, if desired.

Oh my gosh....the local berries have just appeared at my small, local grocery story. $6.50/quart. They are so fabulous...worth every cent. And now a recipe to drink them. I am all over this. Thank you, Patti.
