Lemon Cordial Recipe

We have five lemon trees in our garden and they are all full of lemons at this time of year, so Jen and I decided to make Lemon Cordial with our bounty of lemons. This is a recipe from granny and it is lovely.


3 lemons

2 teaspoons of citric acid

900 grams of sugar

a large bunch of mint

750 ml boiling water

Grate all the skins off the lemons and place them in a bowl, then squeeze the juice from the lemons over the skins. Add all the other ingredients, pour the boiling water into the bowl and stir until the sugar has disolved, crushing the mint at the same time.

Let this mixture cool down and then strain and bottle when cool. It can be stored in the fridge.

Because this is a cordial, you only need to pour a tiny amount in a glass and fill the rest of the glass with filtered water. This is such a refreshing drink, enjoy!
