Elderflower Cordial and Blueberry
A kid friendly jelly - this one uses cordial and water and berries. A nice, gluten free alternative to birthday cake and more fun that aeroplane jelly. Adults like this one too!
Ingredients: for 500 mL
-200mL of elderflower cordial (in supermarkets) -Or you could use any flavour cordial or drink you like
-300mL of water
-5 sheets of gelatine
Cut the sheets of gelatine into pieces and place in a bowl. Cover with 100mL of water. Leave so soften for 5 minutes
Oil jelly mould with an unseated oil such as vegetable oil
Place bowl of softened gelatine over a saupan of simmering water and stir until the gelatine has melted. Do not let it boil.
Strain the gelatine into the remaining 400mL of cordial and water. Stir.
Pour into mould and place berries on top. If you want to be fancy you can do this in 2 stages. Fill the mould half way and add berries and put in the fridge to set then repeat. This means that the berries will be throughout the jelly rather than just at the bottom.
Setting should take approximately 4-5 hours.
