Elderflower cordial question
« on: June 26, 2010, 20:12 »
Evening all
Hope this is in the right section.  I am going to make some elderflower cordial next weekend for the first time - gasp! Just wondered can  I store it in plastic screw top bottles or must they be glass ones?
Cheers
Twiggy

I store mine in plastic bottles, saved lots of little water/ fizzy pop bottles, I then sterilised them with vwp.  Last year I didn't have vwp so once made I syuck a load in the freezer and t defrosted fine.
Hope that helps.

I use a glass bottle with kilner style lid for the cordial I will drink first then the rest I put in the freezer in plastic containers and defrost when needed.  That way it lasts all year without any worry and whenever I want some I just get a block out and defrost it.

Brilliant thanks for your replies.  It will be great to freeze it and have some with medicinal vodka in the Winter months :)

I love my elderflower cordial added to gin and tonic. Fab summer evenings drink!
Be like a duck. Calm on the surface but always paddling like the dickens underneath.
