Plum Lemonade Concentrate
Here is the recipe that I used to create a Plumade that when added to equal parts of water it was very refreshing and another great concentrate to add to my pantry!
- 4 cups plum juice, from plums peeled and slow cooked for the juice
- 2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice (I used bottled lemon juice)
- 4 cups sugar
Over medium-high heat add plum juice, lemon juice and sugar and stir to combine. Using a thermometer heat to 190 degrees Fahrenheit, stirring occasionally. Because this recipe has sugar it will get to temperature rather quickly so keep your eye on the thermometer. Remove from heat.
To reconstitute, mix one part concentrate with one part water, tonic water or ginger ale. Adjust concentrate to suit your taste.
**If you do not want to process this concentrate in canning jars, freeze the concentrate in 1 to 2 cup portions.
