Our Dromana College Green Team had the opportunity to get busy in the kitchen at the end of Term 2. It was a great opportunity to make lemon cordial with our lemons and utilise our herbs to make a delicious salad. Here is the very simple and very tasty cordial recipe if you have lemons at home:
Home Made Lemon Cordial
500ml lemon juice
500g white sugar
Step 1 – Pour the sugar and water into a medium sized saucepan. Heat on low and continue to stir until all of the sugar has dissolved. Leave to cool completely.
Step 2 – Get busy juicing those lemons (any fruit can be juiced) until you have reached 500ml.
Step 3 – Add the lemon juice to the cooled sugar syrup.
Step 4 – Bottle your cordial (I just use empty soda water bottles) and keep it in the fridge.
Step 5 – Enjoy with cold water or soda water.
**Thanks to my Mum Sue Hale for this simple and delicious cordial recipe.
Happy cooking and gardening
Laura Bridgman and the whole Green Team
