It is the beginning of strawberry season and the end of lemon season. What better time to make strawberry lemonade? I made enough concentrate for 3 gallons of strawberry lemonade and I'm sure it is not nearly enough to get me through the summer! Seriously, I'm a sucker for strawberry lemonade. And it is so deliciously tasty made fresh. Addictingly delicious. No joke.
3 cups lemon juice (About 8 lemons)
3 lbs strawberries
1 cup sugar
Water (about 9 cups)
1. In a small saucepan over medium heat create a simple syrup by dissolving 1 cup sugar in 1 cup water. Remove from heat as soon as it turns clear.
2. In a blender combine lemon juice, strawberries and syrup. At this point it is strawberry lemonade concentrate. You can freeze it for later use or use it immediately.
3. Put strawberry lemonade concentrate mixture in a large pitcher. Add water to taste. About 8 cups.
