2/3 cup (160 ml) water
2/3 cup (135 grams) granulated white sugar
2 pounds (1 kg) fresh strawberries
4 tbsp lemon juice (I used 6 key limes)
Cook water and sugar together to a nice syrup.. takes ca 4 to 5 minutes.
rinse and puré the strawberries, combine the lime/lemon juice then the syrup stirring constantly. Some caramel may build but will dissolve when stirred well
I added this mixture to my icemaker and let it work for 45 minutes. Then it became like a nice frozen strawberry margarita, just the virgin type :)
Some I put in a box in the freezer and it looks promising :)
Tastes just wonderful on a hot summer night!
