Now as you may recall from yesterday we were given a good stash of blackcurrants which we mostly turned into jam! But….. we still had 368 grams left so…… we decided to also have a go at making some blackcurrant cordial, or as when Becksie was a little bit older than Lizzie is now as she used to call it Cung Cung!
Now there are a million recipes around for blackcurrant cordial so Becksie did what she does and did some research until she came up with her very own cut and shut version. So may we present Becksie’s Cung Cung aka Blackcurrant cordial! Enjoy!
Take 368grams of black currants!
Add 200mls of water
Boil up until all the fruit is soft. As you mix mush the fruit up as much as possible.
Strain through a jelly bag. Unless you’re a member of Team Pugh at which point one of Lizzie’s old muslins and a contraption made by Ian will do.
Dilute to taste.
