Delicious cordials can be made in one easy process using our steamers, which extract juice from fruit with steam.
Juice extraction by steaming is ideal for currants (blackcurrants, redcurrants and whitecurrants), for hard fruits like crab apples and quinces, and for berries like blueberries, raspberries, loganberries and elderberries. Gentle cooking by the steaming method enhances the flavour of all these fruit juices.
Cordials are made by steaming such fruits with sugar. The process is simple, quick and not at all messy. Simply load the steamer basket with alternate layers of fruit and sugar, draw off the initial juice via the outlet tap and pour back over the fruit to evenly distribute the sugar through the juice, steam for the required length of time, draw off the cordial into hot bottles and apply screw caps. Careful hot bottling preserves the cordial indefinitely so that you can savour the taste of summer even in the depths of winter.
You can use for all sorts of fruits for cordials either as single variety cordials or mixed blends. For a really tasty cordial the fruit(s) should have a good balance of sugar and acid. Try the following:
