Meadowsweet cordial

You need…

  • 1 litre of water
  • 250 g sugar
  • Loads of meadowsweet (about 50 heads?)
  • 1 lemon

Bring the water to the boil with 125g sugar and the lemon juice, then switch off. Strip all the flowers from their stalks and add to the water, which should end up with a thick wodge of flowers floating on it. Bring the water back to simmer point then switch it off. Infuse overnight. Next day strain out the flowers, add the rest of the sugar, boil for 5 minutes and then when cooled put in a sterilised bottle.
