From lemons...

To Lemonade! (Lemon cordial)

8 lemons
2 tablespoons citric acid
1 tablespoon tartaric acid
Sugar syrup - 1.5 litres water + 1.5 kilos sugar, boiled together until the sugar has dissolved.
Grate about 2 tablespoons of rind from the lemons before you cut them.

Juice the lemons - if you put them in the microwave for a minute before cutting them, you'll get more juice.

Add the grated rind and the juice in a large bowl. Add citric and tartaric acids. Pour the hot sugar syrup over the juice and mix well.

Allow to cool and pour into bottles. Stores well in the fridge for a month. Dilute with water to taste and serve with lots of ice.
