Happy Independence Day!!!  We made up this recipe as a family a few days ago and I thought it would be a perfect one to share for your holiday gatherings.

Strawberry Lemonade

Mix 2 C water and 2 C sugar in a small pan.  On medium heat, stir until sugar is dissolved.  Place a pint of washed, hulled strawberries in the blender.  Poor the water/sugar syrup over the strawberries. Blend until smooth - or semi smooth if you like some chunks of strawberry in your drink.

Then poor this mixture into a 4 quart pitcher.  Add 2 C of fresh squeezed lemon juice or lemon juice concentrate (in the green jar at the store).  Then finish filling pitcher with a combination of ice and water until it is as full as you can get it.

**Have a refreshing holiday!**
