About this Custom Cook
Roasting the strawberries in the Brava amplifies their strawberry flavor and increases their natural sweetness. This pairs perfectly with fresh-squeezed lemonade. I like keeping the strawberries chunky in this so I mash them with a potato masher after roasting, but feel free to put them in a blender if you would like a more homogenous lemonade. For a fun twist, add 3 cups of water and 3 cups of sparkling water to make sparkling strawberry lemonade.
1 pint strawberries, sliced in half
1 cup sugar
6 cups water
2 cups ice
