Fresh Pennywort Drink


Wash the leaves well, pinch off stems and, for each handful of leaves, add 2-1/2 cups cold water and 1/2 cup simple syrup made with equal parts of sugar and water. (Boil to dissolve sugar, allow to cool and store in a bottle.) Add 3 or 4 ice cubes and blend at high speed. Blend the drink just before serving or it will lose its bright colour.
