Salute spring with a batch of lemon cordial

One of the most wonderful things about spring is that fresh produce is in abundance – whether at your local farmers market or in your humble backyard veggie patch.

The Garden section provides handy hints on when to harvest and pick produce and the correct way to store it, while The Recipes section features more than 100 recipes for your bounty of goods, including pickles, chutneys, vinegars, jams and drinks, such as this recipe for lemon cordial. more
