Strawberry Rhubarb Lemonade

IMG_3697[1]

I decided to try this recipe because I wanted to get rid of some frozen strawberries and rhubarb I had been left over in my freezer from last summer. Turned out, it was a hit and everyone in the family loved it! The strawberries gave it a natural sweetness and the rhubarb was slightly tart so it was a nice combo. (We added a bit of honey at the end to taste). It was very simple and hardly took anytime to make. Here is the recipe, hope you enjoy it!

Ingredients:
2 cups frozen strawberries
2 cups frozen rhubarb
8 cups of water
1 lemon, sliced
Maple sugar or honey to sweeten

Instructions:
In a large saucepan bring strawberries, rhubarb and water to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Turn off the heat and allow to cool. Strain the juice into a pitcher making sure that no chunks of strawberry or rhubarb get into the pitcher. Cut up the lemon and add to the pitcher, add honey or maple sugar to sweeten. Put in the fridge and chill for 4 hours. If it is too concentrated just add more water and if it is too bland use less water next time. Enjoy!!!
