Fruit Cordial/Syrup

Home-made fruity yummy cordial – tastes as good as the fruit you have made it out of and will keep happily in your fridge for up to 3 months. I often use up to 4lb of fruit at a time in the recipe and alter the rest of the ingredients accordingly.

Allotment Rhubarb Gin

So! If you have forced any early rhubarb great, as the final colour of the gin is a lighter more delicate shade of pink, but if not, carry on with the usual rhubarb and the colour will be darker but just as tasty! Lovely on its own and just as scrummy with tonic and a sliced bit of fresh rhubarb.
