Once again we are inundated with citrus....tho this year I had to go to Freecycle for lemons, much fewer trees around I guess. Anyway, we picked over 100 pounds of fruit and I spent
most of a day juicing and slicing.
Ended up with about 5 gallons of juice which I froze in ice-cube trays (then bags) for using all year long.
Also made and canned 9 quarts of strawberry lemonade (pictured above). We had several bags of frozen strawberries from last spring still in the freezer and needed the space anyway. I had intended to enjoy this refreshing drink during our long hot summers, but my kids discovered the jars and have already gone thru several. Oh well, strawberry season is in a couple months :)
I even dehydrated several batches of slices, tho I'm not quite sure what to do with my handiwork....
....but they do look pretty up on the shelf :)
Lastly, I made one of my childhood favorites....lemon bars...yum!
