There are times when I get irritated as all the cold drinks in the house are finished and nothing is left when we have unexpected guests. So I have decided I am going to make this squash this summer (after exams of course) which will be Apr 16th this year as Eldest is answering her 10 Std. 1 kg Sugar 400 grams water 6 grams citric acid Colour ¼ tsp Essence
- Mix sugar and water bring to boil.
- Add citric acid and boil. Keep testing the boiling mixture till a drop between you thumb and finger stretches to form a single strand.( 1 tari pak)
- Cool add colour and essence of your choice.
Go easy on the colour, use a few drops mix well and add more if required. Colour and essences in general Yellow— pineapple, mango, lemon Orange – orange, Red – strawberry, raspberry Apple green—khus Serve mixed with cold water, ice use salt if required. I had made a batch for Holi today. I had used mango essence and yellow colour. For ¼ of the concentrate made above we got 1 ½ litres of sharbat. .
