Thanks @littlefoodwonders for your flattering review of our salad greens: “...I highly recommend seeking out the best, which, locally, means the salad mix at Old Friends Farm”. So sweet - thank you!

Strawberry Lemonade: (makes 1/2 gallon) I'm a sucker for a good, cold drink. I know, I know - consuming cold things is not good for your digestive 'fire' but I love them anyway. No alcohol needed (though that could be delicious too!) I started by cutting up 1 pint of strawberries. Mine were '2nds' berries that were too mushy or ugly for us to sell, but you could use any grade. Then I added a layer of thinly sliced lemon. I used 1 lemon. Pour your favorite sweetener over the lemons. In this case I used our Turmeric Honey. Pour until your sweet tooth is confident. Our official until of measurement is the 'glug' (as in glug, glug, glug) of which I used 4. And here's the secret ingredient: Salt. I added about a half-teaspoon. Make sure to use the most dainty, hand-carved spoon you can find. It makes it feel all the more special (and secret!) Add the chill to this cold drink with added oomph. This means ice, of course (trendy perfect cubes are nice), but also whatever left-over fruit is still in your freezer from past years. I still had some frozen strawberries from 2017, and frozen elderberries from 2015. Use 'em up for crying out loud! Fill to top with water, shake, and serve. Then post your pics! #lemonade #refreshing #summer #turmeric #strawberry #colddrinks #oldfriendsfarm #turmerichoney #organic
