Another use for this recipe... I took the lemon and ginger peelings/pulp left over from this and added more water. Put it back in a sauce pan and let it simmer away...It made the greatest room freshener!!
This cordial disappears rather quickly from the fridge so get in sooner to get your share! This recipe scales down well if you want to make a smaller amount.
I halved the amount of sugar suggested as we found it too sweet. (I usually reduce sugar by at least 25% for US recipes as we tend to like things less sweet in Europe). Also left let the flavours infuse before straining when cool for added tang.
This is so delicious! The lemon helps to cut the sweetness but the real ginger flavour is fantastic (and I'm a real ginger fan, ask Zaar Chef Koooka). I let the ginger,lemon and sugar syrup stand for a few hours before I bottled this so that the flavours could infuse. I'll be making this a lot - thanks Chrissy.
