Rinse the raspberries. Boil them with the water for 5 minutes. Strain the mixture through a jelly cloth for 30 minutes. Clean the saucepan and pour the strained liquid back into it. Add the sugar and lemon juice. Simmer, constantly skimming off the scum, until the mixture is completely clear. Pour into warm, sterilised bottles. Seal. Store in a cool place. The raspberries can be replaced with any other fruit or berries.
For a special touch, add some fresh raspberries to the cordial before serving.
