Great way for me to deal with a lemon glut !!! So easy to do and I also threw in a couple of limes all with a great result !!!
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!
Great recipe! Who knew it would be so easy. I used whatever I found in the yard- oranges, lemons, grapefruit and mandarins. And it made a LOT! Tastes great with soda water, nice little tipple to serve to guests. Cheers!
Excellent recipe. Dave drinks quite a lot of cordial so this recipe will be made often. Today I doubled the recipe and used some really juicy oranges that our neighbours gave us. I didn't use the rind as the outside of the oranges weren't that nice so instead used a couple of extra oranges (18 in total, they were small). For the doubled recipe I ended up using about 3.5 kilos of sugar and bought this to a soft boil in a stockpot on the stove with the water and juice. Once boiled I then added the tartaric and citric acid. Thank you for this recipe, you have saved us heaps of money in cordial with the bonus of knowing what is in it.
Fantastic recipe. This is so easy. Why would you ever need to buy cordial?! I halved the recipe with no problems and still managed to fill two bottles. I'm going to try limes next! Thanks for this recipe. It's a real keeper!
