Blackcurrant cordial

We have tons of blackcurrants on the bushes this year and I have been thinking of ways to use them up.  Last year I made Elderflower Cordial, which was very delicious and I had wanted to make blackcurrant cordial but just didn’t get round to it. So, I was determined to do it this year, and what a treat it is.  It is simply diluted with tap water in this photo, but I am going to try it with sparkling water and I think it would be lovely in prosecco. The girls love it too and I am sure that it is much better for them than the bought stuff. I will be making this again and again.

I am not going to put the recipe here as I used this one from The British Larder pretty much word for word so take a look at their blog for how to make this lovely summer treat.  It is really worth making.

  1. Fabulous! It’s looking great! The addition of adding prosecco instead of water sounds great. Perhaps an idea we can use here at the British Larder Suffolk for our specials board.

  2. I’ve never fancied elderflower cordial, but this blackcurrant looks like one I could get into!

    In fact a bit of Prosecco and a dash of Archers and I bet you’ve got a delicious cocktail too! 🙂
