Summer is here and with it, my desire for a cool drink of Lemonade. I could almost live off the refreshing lemony taste. It gets even better when you add berries. Strawberry Lemonade Concentrate allows you to have a cool drink all summer long with half the work of making it.

I made it to the store earlier this week. It really has become a feat with 4 kids, all vying for a seat in the cart. I personally can’t stand the huge car like carts that are supposed to make it easier for the mom with lots of little ones, because they don’t make it easier. I find with those carts my kids are fighting more, hanging heads out the little windows, can hide stuff in the cart without me seeing easier, not to mention they’re harder to turn and feel like you’re driving a semi down a dirt road.
Sorry I completely lost track here. Where was I? Oh yes, I ventured to the grocery store, with 3 of the 4 kids in tow. Upon entering the store, an amazing deal screamed at me.
Strawberries – $1.50 for a 2lb case. We love the berries in our house, so I was not going to pass up this deal. The first couple of days we were eating them in our yogurt, but I soon realized we were not eating them fast enough that way, so off to my Pinterest Food Board I went. I knew I had pinned a freezer strawberry jam and was hoping to find it again. In my search for that recipe, however, I came across one I wanted to try even more – Strawberry Lemonade Concentrate.
One afternoon of squeezing lemons and hulling strawberries meant I could then enjoy a strawberry lemonade all year long with half as much work each time! Mix with water or club soda to reconstitute, then sit back and enjoy!

While we’re talking about canning, I was pretty excited for this list of dishes to make with Home Canned Tomato Sauce from God’s Growing Garden
And I’m pretty sure I’ll be trying this BLT Bruschetta soon too from Joyful Homemaking
