This cordial is excellent served used with one part of the lime syrup mixed with 4 parts (or to taste) of chilled water, lemonade or soda water.Method:
6 large limes (or 8 small)
1.5kg (3lb) sugar
4 cups boiling water
1 tablespoon citric or tartaric acid
Combine the lime rind, citric or tartaric acid, sugar and boiling water and mix well to dissolve the sugar. Add the reserved lime juice and mix through. Leave to stand until the mixture is cool (or overnight). Strain the mixture through a fine sieve (line the sieve with muslin if desired).Pour into sterilised bottles and seal.
So whilst a lot fresher is a lot more expensive!I think that this cordial tastes great and is good value for money. Whilst Roses Lime Cordial is possibly slightly nicer i'm not sure if it warrants double the price! YOu can still really taste the flavour of lime and is great to give water a bit of an extra taste. With recommendations that everyone should drink 2 litres of water a day there is no excuse, just put a dash of lime in and its a refreshing and fat free drink.
