I made this for the kids using the skin on, they complained that it had too much acid/skin taste?
It's not quite as strong ( acid taste ) the next day, is it the skin on or the citric acid giving that taste?
Will the acid taste go away if I leave it in the fridge a bit longer?

Hmmm.  We've never had this problem, so I really don't know.  Were they unwaxed oranges??  Did you strain out the fruit bits immediately, as per the instructions, or did they sit for a bit?  Those are the only things I can think of, sorry.
As my picture shows, I've suddenly become younger :-)  DD was of the opinion that her picture should be here, not mine!

I made the orange squash today. Hubby and kids are huge fans of orange squash. Me, I prefer Crystal Light (an American drink). Anyway, the squash turned out great. I might even start drinking it. The kids love it. The hubby loves it. Cheers for an easy recipe. I'm making the fruit spread now with the scraps from the squash.

Our orange tree is about 2 stories high and covered, so I tried this yesterday. Everyone loved it, so I will be making up a few batches to freeze. Thanks for a great recipe!
BTW I googled 'orange cordial recipe thermomix' and this was the first hit that came up. Should have just looked here first!

Mmm, this looks yum. I don't ever buy cordial for my kids, raw milk and water is mostly what they get. But, I make a mean lemon drink syrup....for mummy ;D....and may have to add this to my repertoire. I will share a bit with the kids of course  :D

We've made this twice and both times it was a success. The first time we had orange and lemon. Yesterday we were given a whole bag of lemons so I  just made lemon cordial and it was very yummy. Not too sweet. Thanks for the recipe. It's a refreshing mixer on our hot summer days at the moment.

Has anyone made this without citric acid and if so how well did it keep?

Thanks so much :)

Made this with limes yesterday and lemons today. Can see I'll be freezing a bit for summer. Lovely timing as I fight off some tonsillitis.

Made this with oranges and a lemon, a little bit is all you need in a tall glass mixed with water and the leftover pulp can be turned into a fruit spread (marmalade really) as suggested.  I made that too rather than throw out the pulp. Refreshing and so easy to make.

It has a very rich colour Judy. Just what we need to drink in this weather.
