Meadowsweet Cordial / Syrup

“Cordial¬†means a concentrated non-alcoholic¬†fruit syrup that is diluted to taste and consumed as a non-carbonated soft drink.”


I love the sweet sweet smell of meadowsweet. In our family, the Meadowsweet was collected for tea only. I made cordial few days ago and it’s all gone! So I have to make more for the winter.


Cordial is sweet, sour and bitter at the same time. Bitters are good for digestion :). So, how to make such a goodie – find the recipe below.
