So to take my mind off the fact that Nicholas doesn't like to sleep and I have to spend all day with him, I have been spending the little free time I do have in the kitchen. With all the plums I picked last week I made a massive batch of plum fruit leather, and am soon to make more because I had the opportunity to pick some more plums on Friday :).
With the rhubarb I made Strawberry and Rhubarb cordial again, and Rhubarb fizzy drink. Both thankfully were quick and easy.
Here is the making of the cordial (a bit different from the above recipe):
|500gms of rhubarb; 4 cups of strawberries and 3 large lemons|
|Everything cut up and placed in the pot ready to go.|
|With 4 cups of water added I let it come boil and then simmer for 20mins until the fruit was soft and mushy.|
|I then drained the fruit through the sieve.|
|And to the one litre of liquid I added 1 kilo of sugar and dissolved it over heat, and then added the lemon juice.|
|I then poured it into a sterlised bottles using a steralised jug and funnel. Done!|
