Summer Strawberry Lemonade

The summer season is one of my favorite times of year for one reason: fresh, local strawberries! After a trip to the farmers market on a Saturday morning or an afternoon picking them in a field, I always end up with more than I can use.

One of the ways that I love to use them up is by making a refreshing summer strawberry lemonade. It’s quick and easy to make, and tastes great on a warm summer afternoon.
