Because Hubs and I do like our desserts, I really try to make even little changes with sugar where we can, so I used Splenda rather than sugar here. I did boil the strawberries and a lot more of them – probably a cup or so. But I didn’t add the Splenda at this point as I have never cared for the aftertaste I detect after it’s heated. I didn’t find it necessary to simmer it for 10 minutes – five was enough. I strained the boiled strawberries to eliminate the pulp, and then poured the resulting strawberry juice right over ice I put in the pitcher, so it wasn’t necessary to cool it first. I added the Splenda to taste, a little less than called for. This is so pretty, refreshing, and a little more interesting (tho’ not necessarily better) than traditional lemonade. We love it.
