As I was staring at the pile of strawberry stems I’d just cut off while preparing a bowl of berries for Noah, I remembered a tip from food52:
Much like my other flavored waters from back in the day, this infused water was lightly flavored and nicely refreshing. And I felt super frugal too.
Simply toss your (rinsed) strawberry tops in a jar of water, cover and let sit for about an hour.
What’s your favorite “hack” these days? Have a great weekend!
