Strawberry Lemonade
Makes 1-1/2 gallons

2-2/3 cups fresh lemon juice (from 15 to 18 lemons)
4-2/3 cups sugar
Water (about 18 cups), enough to make 1-1/2 gallons
1 pint strawberries, stemmed and sliced

Combine freshly squeezed lemon juice with sugar in a 1-1/2 gallon container. Stir well to dissolve sugar. Add cold water to make the 1-1/2 gallons. Add sliced strawberries and stir. Refrigerate.

To make a more manageable amount (1/2 gallon), use a scant 1 cup lemon juice, 1-1/2 cups sugar, about 6 cups water and fewer strawberries. Refrigerate to chill.

This is another recipe I have had for many years. You can easily use other fruit in the recipe. If using canned fruit, drain well and you may want to decrease the sugar, if the fruit is packed in heavy syrup.

Hi Nancylanders
For the 4th I wanted a
ice cream cake for the dessert. Price checking they ran from $20.00 to$35.00. I know someone in Nancyland can tell me how to make my own.

To Robbie, IN
Your Tin Can Chicken sounds intriguing & I want to try it, but need to make sure I'm doing it right. Is the foil closure to be at the top of the can when you have put the chicken in the can? The directions say that "the closing point is on the top of the chicken". If I wrap it that way is the top of the chicken the shoulders where the neck was? And when I put it in the can with the legs out the top, won't the juices possibly drip from the bottom where the closing point is? Or is that not a problem? I don't want to make a mistake. You always contribute such good recipes, Robbie!

This is a great dessert for summer, when you don't want to turn on the oven. It is also nice, as it can be made ahead and it travels well.

Caramel Apple Éclair Cake

5 pounds Golden Delicious apples - peeled, cored and chopped
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup white sugar- or 1/2 cup sugar & 1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon all-purpose flour, as needed
2 (3.5 ounce) packages instant French vanilla pudding
3 cups milk
1 cup sour cream
1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 (14.4 ounce) box cinnamon graham crackers
1 (18 ounce) container caramel apple dip

Combine the apples, cinnamon and sugar in a saucepan and set over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the apples are tender. If the mixture ends up with a lot of liquid, mix in a little bit of flour, and simmer until thickened. Remove from the heat and allow to cool to room temperature.

In a large bowl, whisk together the instant pudding and milk until smooth. Stir in the sour cream and fold in the whipped topping.

To assemble the cake, line the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish with a single layer of cinnamon graham crackers. Use a slotted spoon to make a thin layer of the apple mixture. Top with a generous layer of the pudding, about 1/3. Repeat layers until you have three layers of apples and pudding and four layers of crackers.

Warm the caramel apple dip in the microwave oven until it can be easily poured. Pour this over the top layer of graham crackers. Refrigerate for at least overnight, but up to 24 hours before serving.

Loads of free books every day, and you can download the entire list, or just open the list for the category you want. I am mostly interested in recipes so that is my usual category.

And almost all of them are free to read on a Kindle or even your PC, and other devices. And Amazon will give you a reader for other than Kindle devices.
I don't have a Kindle so the PC option is great for me.
Just check the price before clicking on order, as once in a while one will not be free any longer.
