First I made lemon and lime cordials. Its really easy and makes a very yummy cordial. I used a recipe I found on the net. Basically you add lemon or lime juice, zest, sugar, hot water and citric acid together and as it cools it thickens and becomes syrupy. The bottles on the left are lemon and the ones on the right lime cordial. Place the bottles in the fridge and they last for ages. Perfect for summer drinks and gifts.
First I got all my equipment washed and laid out. I have a Fowler-Vacola preserving kit.
Next I washed my fruit.
