My kids and I look forward to homegrown strawberry season every year. Since it has come early they have been begging me to make one of their favorites strawberry recipes…Fresh Strawberry Lemonade. I made it for them last night and had almost forgotten how easy and delicious it was. I cannot wait to go pick up some more fresh strawberries and make another pitcher for this weekend!
