Three months ago I embarked on an experiment. I found a recipe for raspberry cordial. It is the same stuff that Anne of Green Gables talked about. They would ceremoniously bring it out when a special guest or the minister came to visit. It was taken from the pantry and often served with a sweet treat or just by itself. Children were often sent off to play while adults enjoyed the cordial.
So, I found a recipe online that told how to make it. It takes a good three months to make...and then, voila, you have cordial.
