Raspberry Cordial Concentrate

Raspberry cordial

Raspberry Cordial Concentrate is, of course, what Anne of Green Gables thought she was serving to her friend (who then became very, very tipsy on Marilla’s raspberry wine!).

Don’t worry, this raspberry cordial recipe won’t leave you light-headed. It is wonderful stuff though, and worth growing a raspberry patch for.

This is a modified version found on a number of internet cookery pages and it hails originally from The Anne of Green Gables Cookbook by Kate MacDonald.

If you have lots of raspberries available, make a double batch, because in this concentrated form it will keep for months in the freezer.

Ingredients

  • 500 g Rasberries Fresh or frozen
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 2 Lemons

Instructions

  1. In a saucepan add sugar to raspberries and cook until soft and the sugar is dissolved. Add the strained juice of 2 lemons.

  2. Strain through cheesecloth in a sieve.

  3. The mix will need plenty of dilution for drinking but can be stored frozen in its current state (put it in a small, sealed freezer container) and thawed as needed.

  4. Usually this amount of concentrate will need 4 cups or more of water added to it, and some people prefer it more dilute than that. Experiment with the amount of sugar ‚Äď you may be able to gradually reduce it further without anyone noticing!

Recipe Notes

If you have lots of raspberries available, make a double batch, because in this concentrated form it will keep for months in the freezer.
