My husband and I are on a quest to remove high fructose corn sryup from our diets (and we just got a membership to Costco!). We really like homemade iced tea, which involves lemonade – storebought has HFCS!!! So I went on another quest to make some homemade lemonade concentrate. I couldn’t find a recipe that I liked, so I made this one up.
This involves some judgement -
Microwave your lemons for 1.5 minutes. Roll them on the counter to release the juice. Juice ‘em!
Measure your juice. However many cups you end up with will also be the measurements for your water and sugar. This is a strict 1-1-1 relationship. If I end up with 3.75 cups of juice, I put in 3.75 cups of water and 3.75 cups of sugar.
Dump it all into a pot and bring to a boil (make sure you’ve got lots of headroom in the pot – this will bubble.)
As soon as it boils, it’s ready to can! Drop it into pint sized canning jars, water bath for 15 minutes. Makes 6-8 pints, depending on how much juice you get.
Each pint will equal a single container of lemonade. Add the concentrate to your pitcher and then add in water, I add about 3-4 pints of water because this is a concentrate, or to taste, and maybe some mint, or mint tea and VOILA! You have homemade lemonade in the snow in February!
A sweet, spicy, nutty pumpkin butter that will warm your blood on chilly autumn days.
Sparkling jars of brilliant red are lovely to behold, but it’s the taste—sweet and tangy while packing a bit of heat—that make this jam simply outstanding. This jam is best made using a combination of mild and hot peppers. I used Anaheim, poblano and jalapeño peppers, but you can use bell peppers or whatever is available locally.
