Prepare Ahead

The jelly can be made up to 48 hours in advance, and chilled until needed.


  1. 1

    Measure 600ml(1 pint) cold water in a jug and stir in the cordial. Place the gelatine leaves in a small bowl, and add 4 tbsp of the elderflower mixture. Leave to soak for 10 minutes, or until the gelatine is very soft. Place the bowl over a pan of barely simmering water, and stir until the gelatine has completely dissolved.

  2. 2

    Add the gelatine to the elderflower mixture, and stir well. Pour into 4 glasses, then chill on a tray in a refrigerator for at least 2–3 hours, or until set. Serve the jelly in the glasses, topped with whipped cream and a few grapes.
