Blackcurrant Cordial

Blackcurrants are truly Abundant in The Scottish Borders in early summer. This is a great way to preserve some of the harvest.


  • 500g blackcurrants
  • 300gm brown caster sugar
  • 300ml water


  1. Place sugar and water in pan
  2. Heat to dissolve sugar
  3. Add the blackcurrants
  4. Gently simmer until blackcurrants are completely softened (30 mins approx..)
  5. Strain through a metal sieve
  6. Bottle in sterilised jars.

Will keep for up to a month.

If you wish to keep for longer, return juice to heat at step 5. Add the juice of two lemons and boil to reduce to a thicker syrup before bottling.
