Cherry Lemonade

Gee whiz, it must be cherry season, right? I know, another cherry recipe, but I may as well share it now so you can use it, right? If you have made the Strawberry Lemonade this is very similar.

INGREDIENTS

8 cups Cherry Juice

4 cups Sugar

8 Cups Lemon Juice

While you can buy the cherry juice, I got it from fresh cherries using my juice steamer. You can also use an electric juice but you need to remove the pits first. My steamer lets me to throw it all in at once.

Mix all ingredients in a pot and bring to a simmer. Continue to cook until all the sugar has dissolved. Pour into jars leaving 1/4 inch head space and process in a water bath for 15 minutes.

To mix, add 1 quart if concentrate to 1.5 quarts if water, I know this is more than the strawberry lemonade and we even used less sugar, but the cherries are sweeter, hence the change,

See, easy peasy! You can freeze the concentrate as well if that works better for you. Just leave two inches for expansion in Your jars. Now enjoy a taste of Summer all year long.
