Use the concentrate to jazz up any dessert with an extra zing of flavour.
Author: an original recipe from Lavender and Lime


  • 1 l fruit juice
  • Sugar to taste


  • Place the fruit juice into a sauce pan that has graduated markings
  • Place onto the stove on a medium temperature
  • Allow to reduce by half
  • Add sugar to taste if necessary
  • Reduce by half again
  • Adjust the sweetness
  • Set aside to cool before storing in the fridge or freezer


If you do not have a pan with graduations, use the shaft of a wooden spoon to measure the height in the pan of the liquid. Use this to work out when it has reduced by half and half again.
