Strawberry Lemonade Concentrate, Bottled created by Cookin-jo
Ready In:
6 500ml jars




  • Rinse and drain the strawberries quickly.
  • Hull and measure.
  • Squeeze the lemon juice and measure.
  • You will probably need about 16 lemons, or 24 limes, but buy a few extra as they can vary quite a bit in juiciness.
  • Put the jars on to boil in a large kettle, with the water coming up at least an inch over the tops of them.
  • Let boil 10 minutes before removing to be filled.
  • Meanwhile, purée the strawberries.
  • Heat them with the lemon or lime juice and sugar until the sugar is completely dissolved, but do not boil.
  • Pour into hot sterilized jars to within 1 cm (1/2") of the tops.
  • Seal with lids sterlized according to the manufacturers directions.
  • (Generally, boil for 5 minutes.) Process in a boiling water bath for 15 minutes.
  • To serve, mix with cold water to taste, about one part syrup to two parts water.
  • Serve over ice.

    Can I use bottled lemon or lime juice instead of actual lemon or limes?

    This was very good, I made it as written and the family really enjoyed it. Next time I think I will use only 4 cups sugar and we can add more later if we think it is neded.

    What a great recipe! We've had a bit of rain here in Aus and the strawberry patch went crazy we've been picking up to 10 cups of straberries every 2 days. So I was searching for something to do with them all. I followed the exact recipe and served it to my guests at our Christmas party and on Christmas day, they ALL loved it! I actually had to open up a second bottle. Thanks for sharing it Jenny.
