Recipe is created for
TM 5Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!
Chop ginger very finely approx 10sec/ Speed 8, Scrape down bowl and repeat if necessary.
Add all other ingredients
Bring to 85⁰C / speed 2 - takes about 5minutes ( longer if doubling the recipe)
Extract the flavours and pasteurize at 85⁰C / speed 2 for 8 minutes
Strain through boiled muslin or other fine cloth and pour into storage containers.
To serve, dilute approximately 1 in 10 i.e. 25ml cordial in a 250 ml glass and top up with Soda Water. Adjust quantity to your taste
Make sure your bowl is very clean. It pays to boil some water 120⁰C in it for a few minutes. You could use the Varoma to steam sterilize your storage containers at the same time. I pour boiling water over the muslin and leave it sit in the water until needed.
Freeze the cordial syrup in bulk and have a smaller container in the fridge for convenience.
All being clean, the cordial syrup should keep in the fridge fora couple of weeks.
The sugar content acts like a preservative , though for home use I halve it and store portions of syrup in the freezer. You can subsitiute up to a third of the sugar with Stevia if you prefer the sweetness.
Use left over ginger pulp in your next Thai recipe or dry it for Ginger Nut Biscuits.
