Strawberry Lemonade Concentrate

Strawberry Lemonade Concentrate

Today is a little bit of a more unique idea on how to use up some strawberries! We have our typical recipe for jam coming up next but this round we are doing something new for our family! This is one that I think my entire family will be glad to have on the shelf during the winter as well. We are attempting to keep the kids off sodas and juices but this is definitely a wonderful addition to add back into the drink mix. If it’s homemade, then I will surely add it to our mix of drinks! So putting it on the shelf and being able to access this whenever, sign me up!!!!!

Strawberry Lemonade Concentrate!! 


6 cups Fresh Strawberries (take those tops off and use in previous recipe) 

4 cups Fresh Lemon Juice (about 5-7 pounds of lemons, you can also add more if you would like a stronger lemon flavor) 

6 cups Organic Cane Sugar



Juice your lemons and remove pulp! 


Prepare the strawberries and pure them! 


Mix all ingredients into a stock pot and put it on low heat until your sugar is fully incorporated. 


While this is working, get your water bath canner ready! Fill with water and get it boiling! 


Once sugar is fully incorporated, you can ladle your mixture into pint jars with 1/2 inch headspace. Make sure to clean the rims of the jars and place the lids and rings on finger tight. 


Place in your water bath canner! Process for 15 minutes. Once the time is finished, place them on the counter and allow them 24 hours to set! 



When you are ready to use: Add 1 pint of concentrate to 3 pints of water. The amount of water can change depending on how strong of a flavor you want!! 



I absolutely love the sound of this recipe for the fact that you can change it to your desires. So if you like a stronger lemon flavor, you can add that more lemons to the mix. If you want it not as strong, you can add extra water! You can make this recipe fit your desires. I may honestly also do this with other fruits when they come in season too. Y’all a black berry mint lemonade sounds amazing! I may need to make mint syrup! Ok the ideas are flowing! 


See these ideas are coming out of the wood works. You can really accommodate these recipes to your needs or desires. Change up the fruit! Not a hard change at all! But we will definitely be using these as a base recipe and changing it with the different flavors! Oh I look forward to sharing more.
