One quart strawberries, one pint water, one pound pulverized sugar, one lemon, one orange. Wash the berries through a sieve, add the juice of the orange and the lemon and the water, work all well together and let mixture stand two hours. Put the sugar into a bowl and strain the juice over it, stirring until the sugar is all dissolved. Stand on ice to cool. This makes a delicious drink for immediate use. It will not keep many days.
