    busyozmum's Note:

    This is SO much nicer than store bought cordial and with not too much effort. Everybody I know loves it when I make my own cordial. For those that have never tried home made, use the cordial sparingly as it seems strong than store bought. May be start with 1/2 inch in your glass and adjust according to your taste. I have also made this with other citrus fruits. You could use 3 oranges & 3 lemons or just use limes. Delish!

      Great recipe, I halfed the recipe as I was low on sugar at the time. Although instead of grating the rind, I did throw in a few of the leftover squeezed lemons into the suacepan to boil and strained the juice afterward, and it gave a very nice tart flavour. The family love this cordial and it goes very nice with water and ice and is wonderful with lemonade. This is a great, easy recipe for anyone who wants to save money and make their own cordial, and as a bonus it tastes heaps better and you know whats in it ! :-) Thanks busyozmum

      This is a great idea. My lemons were very small so I used about 12 of them so my cordial was very tart, the amount of required lemon juice would be a good addition to the recipe I think. I used raw sugar which gave it a nice caramel colour. The cordial is a bit too tart to drink just with water but tastes lovely with a little lemonade, thanks!
