I don't know about you guys, but I LOVE fruit infused water! While talking about it to a couple at church today, the husband made a valid point... it's chick food. Well yes, it is girly, but it's so good! I love water anyway I can get it, with the exception sparkling. So just regular water I guess. Anyways, I wanted to make my own fruit infused water without preservatives, etc. and since I have the fresh fruit sitting here, why not??
I made two jars, one was cherries and pineapple, the other with strawberries and lemon. The strawberry-lemon was a little strong, so I just added more water. I thought they were perfect. You can adjust the strength by the amount of fruit added, and could always add simple syrup to sweeten it to your preference.
Ingredients and Instructions:
-Water and fruit!
-Leave the fruit in the water overnight, strain and serve.
It takes on a slight tint from the natural dye from the fruit, the cherry-pineapple slightly purple, with the strawberry-lemon pink.
