How to make a strawberry lemonade concentrate canning recipe. This is a water bath canning recipe that makes about 5 pints. You then mix the concentrate with 3 parts water, so each pint makes 2 quarts of lemonade.

This uses strawberry puree for the flavor. You can use fresh or frozen berries to make this. I used freshly squeezed lemon juice, but you can also use bottled juice. I recommend not using juice from concentrate for the best flavor.

I reduced the sugar when I made it. I used 5 cups total sweetener, and I used half Splenda for baking and half sugar. It was plenty sweet, and you couldn't tell that I used Splenda at all.

When you're ready to make lemonade, combine 1 part concentrate and 3 parts water. Stir well and serve over ice.

Puree strawberries in a blender or food processor.
Put the strawberry puree in a large pan and heat over medium high heat.

Ladle into prepared jars. Leave a 1/4 inch head space. Wipe the rims and place lids and rings on the jars.
Process for 15 minutes in a water bath.
When the time is up, turn off the heat and remove the lid from the canner. Let cool for 5 minutes. Then remove the jars with a jar lifter and set on a towel or other heat proof surface. Let sit until completely cool. Test lids. Use any unsealed jars right away or place in the fridge for up to 5 days.
  • This makes about 5 to 6 pints per batch. You can double it if you want more concentrate.
