Introduction: Raspberry and Blackberry Cordial
In this instructable I will show you how to make my delicious homemade raspberry and blackberry cordial! It is yummy, refreshing, and super easy to make.
Step 1: Ingredients and Utensils
You will need:
2) Blackberries (if you don't have a bag of just blackberries it's easy to pick them out of a mixed berry bag)
3) Blueberries (you could also get these out of a mixed berry bag)
1) A large bowl
2) A sieve
3) A bottle (for storing your cordial in)
4) A funnel
5) A measuring cup
6) A small pot
7) A stove top
8) A wooden spoon
Step 2: Berries
Measure out one cup of raspberries, one cup of blackberries, and one third of a cup of blueberries. Tip them all into the pot.
Step 3: Water and Sugar
Next, measure out one and a half cups of water and one third of a cup sugar. Add them to the berries and give it all a good mix.
Step 4: Boiling
Once everything is in the pot, put it onto the stove and turn the element up to half-way. Let it sit until the water feels lukewarm, then stir constantly until it boils. When it starts to boil turn the element down to low and keep stirring for five more minutes. After the time is up, take it off the heat and let it cool for ten minutes. Then sieve the mixture to get rid of the berries. (Be careful as the cordial will still be hot.)
Step 5: Bottling
Lastly, funnel the cordial into a bottle for storage - an old wine bottle works really well. When you're ready to drink it, I recommend you add between 1/4 - 1/3 cordial to 3/4 - 2/3 water (but in the end just mix according to taste).
