Delilah's Recipes: Strawberry Lemonade

Hey, everyone! This is Delilah here from Mel's book, Delilah's Downfall. In case you didn't know, I am a chef. Well, more like a glorified cook now that I work at the Bartlett Ranch, but I am loving it. There is something so satifying about cooking for four men.

Anyway, this week, Mel asked me to share my favorite recipes with you all. These are recipes I have picked up throughout the years and adapted them to my own tastes. I hope you enjoy them.

Oh, and make sure that you go by Mel's Blog. She is featuring the American cowboy this week.
Strawberry Lemonade
20 servings
1 3/4 cups pure cane white sugar
8 cups water
1 1/2 cups lemon juice
1 pt of crushed strawberries (optional)

1.In a small saucepan, combine sugar and 1 cup water. Bring to boil and stir to dissolve sugar. Cool to room temp and then chill in refrigerator.

2.Remove seeds from lemon juice, but leave pulp. In pitcher, stir together chilled syrup, lemon juice and remaining 7 cups water.
At this point you could serve it, or toss in the pint of crushed strawberries. Enjoy!

Thanks, this is a favorite of my brothers...although I have to leave strawberries since one of them is allergic to them.
