Lemonade is a summertime tradition. It brings me right back to my childhood where the best elixir from sweltering summer heat was a tall pitcher of lemonade. Pearls of condensation run down the outside of the chilled lemonade pitcher. The ice basks in the afternoon sunlight, you can hear it crackle. Nothing beats the heat or refreshes the body like ice-cold lemonade, nothing.

The indigo bird crap that streaks our house and the tie-dyed sidewalk mean only one thing — mulberry season!
Mulberries are sweeter, more oblong, and more intense than blackberries. They are pit-less and have a hint of blueberry flavor. I’ve walked past these berries rotting on the ground since I was a kid in St. Louis, but this is the first year I’ve made use of them. Looking down underfoot is the easiest way to locate a mulberry tree at peak picking season.
