Lemon Cordial recipe, + MANDARIN/ORANGE & ALMOND CAKE recipe

 – 1cup lemon juice

– Rind of lemons

– This can be frozen when lemons are plentiful and made up when required as follows:

Mix juice and rind with :

            2oz Citric Acid

            1oz Tartaric Acid

            1oz Epsom Salt

            4lb Sugar

            3 pints boiling water

 – I think Joyce also said it tastes better if you freeze the lemon juice first, which is also convenient if you have lots of lemons and little time – Alison

  2. Apricot Jam-Easy Recipe That Is So Cheap To Make.

    I’m certainly not an experienced jam maker, however I have made this jam both last season and this and it is terrific!
    Ingredients:
    2 kg (4 and 1/2 pounds) apricots
    1/2 cup water
    6 and 1/2 cups sugar
    Method:
    Wash, stone and chop the apricots, retaining 1/3 of the stones. Place fruit into a large pan.
    Crack the stones and add the kernels to the pan along with the water.
    Boil until soft.
    Add sugar and return to the boil, stirring constantly. Boil until thickened, stirring frequently.
    Carefully pour into hot jars. Seal whilst hot.
    Notes:
    Don’t omit the kernels from this recipe. They help the jam to set.

  3. A word of caution be careful with the apricot kernels as they contain a natural poison which builds up in the body, an alternative is to use granny smith apples in the mix as it contains pectin which is the setting agent or buy pectin from the local supermarket usually called “jam setter”.
