Homemade lemon cordial...

6 good sized lemons, juiced and seeds discarded
rind of 1 lemon, finely grated
1.5 kgs white sugar
5 cups of boiling water
50 gms citric acid
Add all ingredients to a pan, heat until sugar is dissolved, bring to the boil. Boil about 5 minutes, cool slightly then bottle in sterilised bottles.
Enjoy with soda water, mineral water or still water. Very nice as a Gin soda squash with ice....or Vodka on the rocks with cordial.

Cheers - Joolz


  1. Never made real lemonade. Sounds ever so easy and just the job for Ashes-less Aussies to cry into. Keith says he's making beer in his shed when he retires in October. Maybe I'll take up lemonade making - always assuming I can get the lemons / Do ornges work too?

    love, Angie, xx

  2. Yes, I am going to try an oranges and lemons blend next time. Would be nice and refreshing.
