Clementine and Lime Cordial

If, like us, you have piles of clementines hanging around after Christmas and you’re a bit fed up with the whole festive thing, you need to use them up fast! Here is an excellent way of using up the soft squidgy ones, using all their lovely scented sweetness. This would make a fabulous base for any number of refreshing drinks.

Welcome. I'm a Cordon Bleu trained chef and mother with a passion for cooking vegetarian food. All recipes featured here are dairy, egg, and nut-free, thus 'accidentally' vegan, as my children are allergic to those. My aim is to recreate any dish, even what seems impossible, but free of the ingredients we can't have, and log my exploits here. Please browse what is now several hundred recipes. All the recipes posted (unless stated) are my own creations.

  1. I can’t imagine how you would have the patience to zest the little clementines ๐Ÿ˜‰ Their skin is so thin and soft! Love this as I love everything you make!

  2. We are launching a new site dedicated entirely to dairy free cooking and was wondering if you would like to participate. The site will host a collection from food blogs from across the web from folks like you that take pride in making their meals with love and from scratch.
    Best of all, traffic will go directly back to your site; all we do is organize and link back to you.
