- Ready In:
3 1/2 quarts
- Wash and hull strawberries, then place them into a food processor. Blend berries until smooth. Place the pureed strawberries, lemon juice, sugar and 1 1/2 quarts of water into a very large nonreactive pot. Heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally until mixture reaches 165°F. Make sure you do not boil. Skim off any foam from the top and allow concentrate to cool completely before transferring to canning jars. You may want to strain the concentrate through a strainer before putting into jars. There will be a lot of pulp and seeds.
- Before serving concentrate mix 1 part concentrate with 2 parts water, or go by taste. Concentrate can be stored in the refrigerator for about 1 week or place into the freezer for longer storage. Makes about 3 1/2 quarts.
- If you like strawberries and freshly squeezed lemons you will love this!
