Herb-scented cordial with geranium

I continue to share recipes with you from my participation in the Summer preserves course, this time is a recipe on herb-scented cordial, which is very, very easy to make.

Instead of geranium leaves mint, lemon balm, lemon balm in combination with rosemary could be used for infusion of cordial.

I will use the basic cordial recipe in my little for some other herb-scented cordial version.

Herb-scented cordial with geranium: - 1bottle

  • 300 ml water
  • 85 g sugar
  • 1 lemon - the juice of it
  • 10 scented herb leaves - lemon or orange geranium
  1. Bring the water to the boil in a cooking pot. Add in the lemon juice and sugar and stir until dissolved.
  2. Remove the cooking pot from the heat and add in the herbs.
  3. Cover the cooking pot with a lid, and let the herb leaves infuse for minimum 30 minutes or night over.
  4. Sieve the cordial through a sieve lined with thin cotton muslin.
  5. Pour the cordial into a clean bottle.
  6. Store cold in the refrigerator for up to 4 weeks.
  7. When serving dilute one part cordial with five parts of water.
