If you can find fresh blackcurrants try making this delicious cordial which keeps well so you can enjoy the flavours of summer all year round.
Makes: 3 cups
1 kg fresh blackcurrants
2 cups (500ml) water
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon citric acid
1 2/3 cups white sugar
- Rinse the blackcurrants and place in a pan with the water, lemon juice and citric acid. Heat gently until the blackcurrants pop.
- Strain off the mixture through cheesecloth or a fine sieve. Add the sugar and bring the liquid back to the boil. Simmer 5 minutes.
- Skim off the foam and then pour the cordial into a clean sterilised glass bottle. Seal and store in a cool, dark place.
- To drink, dilute with cold water to taste.
Citric acid is available in home brewing shops.
