Red currant cordial

Easy to make, and it is full of vitamins.

Ingredients:
2 kg (4 lb) redcurrants

6 dl (21 oz) caster (superfine) sugar

4 dl water (13,5 oz)

1 Vanilla pod

 

Remove any coarse stalks. Rinse the berries. Add the berries into a saucepan and add the water.

Slice the vanilla pod in half, and scrape down all the seeds into the water. Also add the actual vanilla pod.

Bring to the boil and let simmer for around 10 minutes (under a lid) Squeeze the berries to the pans edge, to make sure you get all the juice out.

Line a sieve with muslin, and let the berrries stand for 30 minutes dripping down in another pot.

Return the juice to the saucepan, and add the caster sugar. Bring to boil and let simmer for a few minutes.

Then remove any scum from the surface.

Pour the hot cordial through a funnel into a sterilised bottle.

Done!

Keep it at a cold place until served!

You serve it like this;

Dilute to taste with cold water, about 1 part cordial to 5 – 8 parts water.
