I also made a batch of Pineapple Sage Cordial from the flowers of the Sage which you can view here.
Aunty Milly's Lemon Cordial OR 50:50 Cordial
(Aunty Milly is one of my Nan's sisters)
The rind and juice of 6 lemons OR (for 50:50 cordial use 3 lemons & 3 oranges)
4lb (800g) Sugar
1 ounce Tartaric Acid
2 ounces Citric Acid
1 ounce Epsom Salts
1 litre of Boiling Water
Put all ingredients into a basin, Stir well until sugar is dissolved. Strain overnight and bottle. Makes approximately 2 1/2 litres.
Rhonda also makes her own cordials using sugar water. I recently used her method as a guide to make a quick batch of cordial after finding some strained passion-fruit juice in the freezer
|Looking at the photo: I just realised I wrote Pineapple...lol|
It was definitely Passion-Fruit
1 cup of strained passion-fruit pulp
Juice and zest of 3 oranges
Juice and zest of 1 lemon
1 kg sugar
1 litre water
Make the sugar water, by boiling the water and dissolving the sugar. Allow this to cool slightly before adding the other ingredients.
Leave to steep overnight, then strain and bottle the cordial. I recommend storing the straight cordial in the fridge. Dilute to 1:4 or 1:5 cordial to water.
This recipe made just over 2 1/2 litres of cordial.
