Red Clover Drink

I mentioned in an earlier post that we've had a lot of red clover this year.  One of my readers suggested making juice out of it.  We know – from trying the Red Clover Rice the other day - that the flowers are sweet, and my reader said that the chlorophyll in the leaves is excellent and not to be wasted.  So we tried it.  We picked some red clover and washed it, then put the clover in a blender with water:

We added some honey and some lemon juice and blended it all up.  Then we strained all the pulp out of it:

With the right combination of honey and lemon it turned out pretty well… and it was very pretty with the red flowers in it as a garnish!
