I love these delightful, easy, summery jellies, making the most of our vibrant seasonal berries. These are not too sweet and so refreshing. I’ve included a vegan-friendly alternative for those of you who do not eat gelatin.

For how many? Makes 6

Ingredients

  • Recipe 1 - The Gelatine
  • 450ml Elderflower Cordial
  • 4 sheets of gelatine
  • 200g of mixed berries
  • mint leaves for garnish
  • Recipe 2 - The Vegan
  • 450ml Elderflower cordial
  • 1 tbsp Agar flakes
  • 200g mixed berries
  • mint leaves to garnish

Instructions

Recipe 1:

Soak the gelatine leaves in a bowl with 100 ml cold water for 4-5 minutes until it swells and softens. Remove, squeezing out any liquid. Add to a pan with 3 tbsp of the elderflower cordial and stir until it melts, then combine with the rest of the cordial and pour into 6 glasses, placing a mix of berries in each and a small mint leaf or two, if you have them. Leave in the fridge overnight to set, or at least 3-4  hours.

Recipe 2:

Place the cordial in a small pan and sprinkle over the agar flakes, heating gently until they have dissolved. Pour into 6 small glasses (allow to cool a little if its too hot) placing a mix of berries in each and a mint leaf or two, if you have them. Leave in the fridge for 3-4  hours to set.
