Strawberry Italian Ice
What a way to cool off on a hot summer day!

Serves 6

• 1 cups sugar
• 1/2 cup water
• 4 cups hulled fresh strawberries or 4 - 10 ounce packages frozen Strawberries, thawed
• 1/4 cup lemon juice
• 2 tablespoons orange juice

Combine sugar and water in saucepan. Bring to boil and boil rapidly 5 minutes. Cool to room temperature. Puree strawberries in blender or food processor, leaving small chunks of berries.

Add pureed strawberries, lemon and orange juices to sugar-water and mix thoroughly. Pour into freezer trays or containers to freeze firm. Do not pour into dessert glasses to freeze, as glass might break.

Makes about 3 cups or 6 servings. Note: Adjust sugar according to sweetness of berries. Frozen berries or extra-sweet fresh berries may require less sugar (about 3/4 cup).
