a refreshing elegant dessert
I made these beautiful light jellies from homemade Elderflower Cordial. You can of course use shop bought. I chose to set them in Prosecco flutes for a more sophisticated dessert.
You will need:
250ml elderflower cordial
450ml cold water
6 gelatine leaves
1 tsp lemon juice
♥ Mix the cordial and water together
♥ Soak the gelatine leaves in cold water for 5 minutes to soften
♥ Heat 100 ml of the the cordial mixture until hot but not boiling then remove from heat
♥ Squeeze out excess water from the gelatine and then stir into the cordial to dissolve
♥ Stir in the remaining cordial and lemon juice.
♥ Pour into chosen glasses and chill overnight.
I served mine topped with piped cream flavoured with elderflower.
