This is my first winter in Canada... And, it is soooo cold!!! I never imagined that one day I'll refer to -8 degrees as "Wow! I's a warm day toady!"
I can't deny, though, that I love the white blanket of snow that covers everything, I kind of enjoy the fluffy texture and the reflection of the sun on the far-reaching horizon.
Personally, I do not filter it, I drink it straight from the jar. You can add honey or maple syrup to flavor, although I find the sweetness of the strawberries just right. You can also experiment with other fruits like peaches, oranges or lemons.
