Classic Cliche

When life gives you lemons:Make strawberry lemonade!
I had a giant bag of Costco lemons going bad in my refrigerator and strawberries tucked in the bag of the freezer. I looked up a quick recipe on the net.


1 3/4 cups white sugar
8 cups water
1 pint of frozen strawberries
1 1/2 cups lemon juice


In a small saucepan, combine sugar and 1 cup water. Bring to boil and stir to dissolve sugar. Add frozen strawberries. Puree with immersion blender. Allow to cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate until chilled.
Remove seeds from lemon juice, but leave pulp. In pitcher, stir together chilled syrup, lemon juice and remaining 7 cups water.

Food Meets Science

at Flavorology. Rick and I went to Flavorology hosted by Bell Flavors. What a fun event! We got to see people push the boundaries with their creativity. Interesting flavors included a soy sauce blueberry yogurt. Here's one of the dishes we tried, behold the tiramisushi served with asian pear "ginger" and marizipan "wasabi."
