To begin, we washed, cut the tops off, and halved our strawberries.
I measured 4 cups of the berries in the blender. Then I grated the zest of one lemon with a microplaner. I also quartered and peeled 2 of the lemons, seeds and all. We have a powerful Vitamix blender. Supposedly, it can handle that stuff. And, I added 1 cup of sugar to the mix. Yes, that's a Cheerio on the table--I feel like they are everywhere now that the little guy is into table foods.
I processed it all in the blender for about a minute. The resulting syrup was delicious--tangy and sweet!
My friend strained hers, but mine was slow going. And actually, I like the pulp. I prefer more texture, but I know everyone doesn't. I also could have blended the water then and then strained it. My friend strained hers and then poured water through the strainer.
So, I just filled the blender with water and blended away! It was delicious! I've read about "froths" as a decoration/addition to desserts and other dishes, but never really understood it. The froth was good too!
