- 500ml lemon juice and zest
- 1 kg sugar
- 1.5 litres of water
- 2 tbsp citric acid
- 1 tbsp tartaric acid
Boil the water, then add the sugar, bring back to just boiling. Add juice, stir well, and take off the heat.
Add the acid, stirring with a wooden spoon until dissolved.
You can strain it or leave the zest in.
When serving dilute around 30ml of cordial syrup to 170ml, according to taste. Use soda water for a sparkling lemonade.

lemon vinegar, which had been steeping for the last few weeks.
I emptied all the jars and strained out the lemon pieces leaving behind only the liquid. I also added some apple cider vinegar to the mixture to boost the 'vinegarness' of it. Then I bottled it. Ready to use in salads or worst case: eco-friendly cleaner :-).
