  • 500g raspberries
  • 500g caster sugar
  • 3 tsp. red wine vinegar
  • 300ml water


  1. Mash the raspberries, sugar and vinegar together in a pan. Heat over a low heat for 10 minutes until syrupy and smooth, then push through a sieve into a pan.

  2. Mix the pulp left behind with the water, then sieve again into the same pan. Discard the seeds. Stir the contents of the pan together then boil for a minute or two.

  3. Pour into sterilised bottles, then seal.

For extra zing, add some lemon juice or zest. Recipe makes around 700ml of cordial.
