Gorse Cordial - Nelson

Well I have just made my first batch of Gorse Cordial. You pick the flowers - which can be a painful task if you don't concentrate. The flowers sort of smell like coconut.

Basically the recipe is:

Ingredients:

  • 600ml/21fl oz cold water
  • 250g/1/2lb caster sugar
  • Zest: 1 orange
  • Juice: 1 lemon
  • 4 Handfuls of Gorse Flower


Boil it up - the cool - in fridge and leave over night before straining.

The gorse recipe comes from http://www.eatweeds.co.uk/gorse-flower-cordial-recipe a very cool English - foraging site. Dam looks like those poms will eat anything - lock up your herb garden.
