How to Make Strawberry Lemonade

by Eli Cohen


Step 1

Step 2

Wash strawberries and lemons under "warm" water. Strawberries are one of the dirtiest fruits. You must wash lemons too as we need the zest from 2 lemons.

Step 3

Place fresh strawberries and 1 cup cold water in a blender.

Step 4

Process on high for several seconds.

Step 5

In a medium saucepan boil lemon zest from 2 lemons, 3 cups of water and the strawberry purée. Heat on medium and simmer for 15 minutes. Make sure that the color of the purée turns into pink.

Step 6

Sieve strawberry puree through a mesh strainer into a large bowl and add to fresh lemon juice.

Step 7

Squeeze 2 cups of lemon (or more)

Step 8

Sieve lemon juice

Step 9

Add 2 cups of sugar to the strawberry purée after you have sieved it.

Step 10

Mix the purée, sugar and the lemon juice for 2 minutes.

Step 11

Mix the lemonade concentrate with water (I do half to half).
