What You Need:

What You Do:

1. Pour the Rocks Sparkling Elderflower into a wide freezer-proof container and freeze for 2 hours with the lid on. After 2 hours stir with a fork to break up the ice. Repeat this regularly until the whole thing is frosty ice chips.

Elderflower Jelly:

If jelly is your favourite dessert then these fruity floral treats will be just your cup of tea.

Serves: 4

Preparation time: 15 minutes, plus 5-6 hours to set

What You Need:

What You Do:

1. Put ¾ of the Rocks Sparkling Elderflower in a bowl and soak the gelatine leaves. Put the remaining liquid into a small pan and heat to a simmer. Remove from the heat, squeeze the excess liquid from the soft gelatine and drop it into the hot Rocks.

2. Whisk vigorously until the gelatine has dissolved.

3. Pour the gelatine liquid into the bowl and stir well. Refrigerate for 2 hours until it starts to thicken then stir in the fruit.

4. Pour the semi-set jelly into 4 bowls or glasses and return to the fridge for 3-4 hours until set.

Note: If the fruit floats when you pour it into the glasses, come back in an hour and gently poke it down then the jelly has set a little more but is not yet solid.

Cook’s tip: Alternatively, after the first 2 hours, freeze overnight then break up the ice with a sturdy fork in the morning. You will have to set about it with vigour, but it will break up.
