  • 1 cup freshly sqeezed lemon juice 4 to 6 medium lemons
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 cups water divided

Instructions

  • Combine the strawberries and lemon juice in a blender or food processor and puree.
  • Add the puree to a medium sauce pan. Add the sugar and 1 cup water and bring to a light simmer over medium heat, stirring consistently until the sugar is completely dissolved, about 8 minutes.

Notes

If you use frozen strawberries in this recipe, make sure to thaw them first. They will release a lot of juice, be sure to add that to the food processor as well!
