Organic Lemonade Recipe - Giveaway Reminder

If you need a reason to enter my 400th posting giveaway, here you go...

My favorite recipe for lemonade:

Mix all the ingredients (6 1/2 cups water, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup lemon juice) and serve over ice, if desired. We use all organic ingredients so sometimes with the sugar being unbleached, it does have a tan hue to it. It might not look as beautiful but it tastes spectacular.

I also made organic strawberry jam this past week. If it tastes as good as it looks, then it promises to be wonderful. It is my most beautiful strawberry jam that I've ever made. I always get nervous that it will not set up to my satisfaction. However, we've been making some wonderful homemade vanilla ice cream and strawberry topping would make wonderful strawberry sundaes. 

This week's canning project - blueberry jam. I'll post photos when that project is complete. I also have a patchwork quilt that will shortly be completed and a crochet black cat for T Rex. It's been a tedious project. If you are familiar with crocheting and baseball then maybe you can appreciate my frustration with trying to keep track of doubles and singles at the game while trying to crochet. But my list continues to have items crossed off.

Don't forget the 400th posting giveaway will be closing soon. Thanks to all those who have already entered. If you have not, make sure you enter for a chance to win a set of glass straws from Straws by Carli with a storage case by Caboose Cloth. It sure dresses up my lemonade or my smoothies.

I think I could make the lemonade... The jam looks a lot more challenging.

Okay, I'm salivating over here thinking about those sundaes! I love how committed you are to organic and being green. And as usual I am in awe of your energy and talent!

I can't get enough of homemade jam. Can't wait to see how your blueberry jam turns out!

Have you ever tried agave nectar in your homemade lemonade? It is so yummy.

Keep up the wonderful work!
