Today started off wet and dreary but the sun forced its way out and it turned out to be a lovely day! Yayy!
It was my day off and as I was going through some old papers I found a recipe I scribbled down from Andrew's Aunt many years ago
- Rose Cordial
it looked easy enough so I gave it a go!
Ive always loved this syrupy sweet cordial - its offered everywhere in Cyprus and Greece, even the local cafes will have it on the menu!
Usually served with ice cold water for hot summer days or
with chilled milk to young kids ( or big kids like me!) i think it would be yummy as frozen iceblocks too!
3 cups water
1/4 cup rose water
drops of pink food colouring
Boil sugar and water. Add the rose water and food colouring. Simmer on low heat until thick & syrupy (still runny)
Store in a bottle.
