How to Make Blueberry Lemonade: Blueberry Lemonade Recipe

Finally now it does feel like summer in Texas. I have made this simple ice cream  (no ice-cream maker required) couple of times already. Other day I ended up buying 3 packs of blue berries as they were on sale ! So I ended up making Blueberry Lemonade to make sure they do not go bad. I had never tried it before but it turned out pretty well. Both my grand kids loved it so much that they did not want to share it with anyone. !

It is very simple to make and does not need many ingredients.

Preparation Time: 15 Minute
Serves: 5 people


1. 1 Cup Blueberry
2. Juice of 2 lemons
3. 1 tbsp lime juice
4. 2-1/2 cup water
5. 1/4 cup sugar
6.  5 to 7 mint leaves
7.  1tsp cumin powder
8. 1/4 tsp black salt ( optional )
9. salt to taste
10. ice for serving

Method To Make Blueberry Lemonade:

1. Crush Blue berries and mint with 1 cup water blender and make really nice puree.
2. Filter this puree in a strainer.
3. Add 1-1/2 cup water, sugar, lemon juice, lime juice, salt, black salt and cumin powder.
4. Dissolve sugar well.
5. Now Blueberry lemonade is ready to serve.

Serve it chilled or with ice cubes.

How To Make Jam Using Slow Cooker

Few weeks back we went for strawberry picking with our grand-kids and ended-up picking lot more strawberries than we would consume. How can you blame two very excited 5 year olds !

Two of my Hetzler 3-in-1 Berry Boxes did really good job of keeping strawberries in good shape for more than 2 weeks. They are great value for money and great product to have to reduce the wastage of berries. So even though my Berry Boxes are great help, I needed to make some room in my freeze. So I ended up making some mix-fruit Jam with those freshly picked strawberries.

Just like my Mango Jam, I made this mix-fruit jam using slow cooker as well so no worries about stirring to make sure Jam is not sticking and not splatters of Jam all over the kitchen !

It was very simple to make Jam in crockpot. All I did was crushed the fruits and mixed them with sugar. Rest work was done by my slow-cooker !

Preparation Time 10 Minute
Cook Time 4 hours 20 Minute

1. 2 cup shredded apple
2.1 cup pineapple puree
3. 1/2 cup strawberry puree
4. 1 cup pineapple  juice ( optional )
5. 2 1/4 cup sugar
6. 2 tbsp lemon ( lime ) juice

Method of making Jam in Crockpot:

1. Combine fruits and sugar in a slow cooker bowl and mix them well.

2. Set slow cooker on high. Make sure to not cover the slow cooker.
3. After about 4 hours mix the fruit puree well and churn it with hand-mixer.
4. Cook for another 20-30 minutes or so until desired consistency is reached.
5. Now transfer jam in a bowl and add lemon juice. Again mix it well.

6. After jam is completely cool, transfer it in a mason Jar.

Jam will be good in freeze at least 1 month in freezer for 6 months. Enjoy with these healthy eggless dinner rolls or with this eggless cinnamon raisin bread.
