lemon cordial

Ingredients



4 small/medium lemons
plus your saved lemon carcasses if you have used the juice to make houmous
230g sugar

Method



Cut lemons into eighths, removing only the very top and tail (just a couple of milimetres of trimming). Boil them and the sugar, in approximately a litre of water for around 45 minutes to an hour, until they are very mushy and have fallen apart.

Pulverise the fruit and all the liquid in your food processor/liquidiser until it is a very smooth liquid.



Dilute this approximately 1:5 but test to see what strength you prefer.

Make this once in the month if you are following our planner.
