 Ingredients List

  • 2 pt Strawberries
  • 3 c Sugar; approximately
  • 10 Lemon balm sprigs, fresh



2 pt Raspberries; 4 half pints
3 c Sugar; approximately
10 Thyme sprigs, fresh

"Delicious with ice cream, waffles, or in a drink. Try making it with lemon
verbena or lemon thyme, too."

To make a drink: put several tbsps in bottom of glass, add cold or
sparkling water and ice.

Wash and hull the strawberries, place in a bowl, and crush with the back of
a wooden spoon or a potato masher. Line a medium bowl with cheesecloth,
pour the crushed strawberries and their juice into the cloth, then gather
up the corners and squeeze until all the juice has been extracted. Weigh
the juice, then combine it with an equal amount of sugar and the lemon balm
in a non-aluminium saucepan. Bring to a boil and boil it for 5 minutes.
Remove from the heat, skim any foam from the top, and let cool. Discard the
lemon balm before bottling. Store in the refrigerator.
