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.
