citrus cordial. a recipe.

what to do when you have a glut of delicious citrus? make homemade cordial of course!

a stack f pink grapefruit, sliced in half to revel the pinky-orange flesh

i've used this recipe to make lemon cordial, as well as to make this batch of pink grapefruit cordial...

it's so simple, i don't even really know if it could be called a recipe ha ha.

cordial simmering away in a saucepan

500mL citrus juice
500g white sugar
500mL water
zest of 2 fruits

heat sugar, water and zest in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring often until sugar dissolves.
add juice and bring to the boil.
remove from heat and strain, then pour into sterilised bottles.

see what i mean? so simple!

the cordial, strained and poured into sterilised bottles

and just so perfect over ice, diluted with soda water, to keep cool over summer!

have you ever made your own cordial? what's your favourite flavour?
