Home brews of the none alcoholic type!
« on: May 21, 2012, 12:47 »
Hi all,

I am wondering what hedgerow brews/cordials I can make for my family this year.

All very new to me so rather than recipies, I am after ideas of what fruits and when etc.

Many thanks

I made red currant cordial once. I hate all those little seeds, so it was a good way to use up all the berries. Blackberry would be nice, and freely available soon.

Elderflower is a good one to start as there's usually a lot of it about  :)

We've made elderberry cordial the last two years, it's very nice diluted as a drink or as a syrup over yoghurt, etc.  I use the recipe from Darina Allen's book Forgotten Skills of Cooking.  Our favourite spot for picking them is also good for blackberries and rosehips, both of which can also made into cordials and syrups.

It is a non-alcoholic cordial.. but I must admit that I made too much last year and the extra has been diluted with supermarket grape juice, sugar and yeast added, and is in the process of maturing into a heavy red wine!
