Strawberry Water (Or Strawberry Cordial)

Time: 1 hrs 30 mins

Ingredients

  • 300 g strawberries, ripe and unblemished, washed and hulled, with any damaged sections removed
  • 375 g granulated sugar
  • 1500 ml water

Directions

  • 1 In a large pan over a low flame, dissolve the sugar in the water.
  • 2 Increase the flame and bring the liquid to a boil, then plunge in the strawberries, put a close-fitting lid on the pot and turn off the heat.
  • 3 Leave the pan undisturbed for at least an hour to infuse.
  • 4 Dampen a piece of muslin cloth (or a jelly bag), and strain off the liquid into a large bowl or jug. Leave the pulp to drip until all the liquid has been collected - do not press the strawberry pulp, or the liquid will turn cloudy. In my experience, the drained pulp is very popular with passing children, despite its rather anaemic appearance!
  • 5 Chill the beautiful ruby-red strawberry water, then serve over ice. You may need to dilute it with water, to taste.
  • 6 Alternative serving suggestion - pour a little of the chilled strawberry water into a wine glass, then top up with chilled sparkling wine.
