Method

Raspberry Cordial is a community recipe submitted by Monica and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Steep raspberries in the wine overnight.
  • The next day, rub raspberries through a nylon sieve, pressing them with a rubber spatula to extract the maximum amount of juice. Rinse the sieve and pass the juice through again.
  • Add the sugar and stir to dissolve, boil for 5 minutes and then rest for 15 minutes. Do this three times altogether, it sterilises the cordial while preserving the flavour.
  • Pour into sterilised bottles. The cordial keeps for a year in a cool cupboard, but once opened it should be kept in the fridge.
