Elderflower & Raspberry Jelly

I love elderflower juice, especially sparkling elderflower and this is exactly what I use for this deliciously fragrant, light and refreshing jelly, ideal for lazy summer nights in the garden! If you can, try and make this the day before you want to serve it so that it has time to set properly.

I like to serve mine in individual glasses but if you prefer you can make it in 1 large jelly mould.

{Makes 4 individual glasses}
 6 gelatine leaves (I use Fine Leaf Gelatine – Platinum Grade)
750ml sparkling elderflower juice
40 fresh raspberries (approx. - you don't have to be too specific but around 10 per glass works for me)
Edible gold glitter – a totally optional and extravagant touch

Soak the gelatine in cold water for 5 minutes. While the gelatine is soaking pour the elderflower juice into a pan, cover with a lid and gently warm up to almost boiling. Remove from the heat then take the softened gelatine out of the cold water and squeeze out any excess water. Add to the elderflower juice and stir quickly to melt and combine. Transfer into a large pouring jug and leave to cool.

If you have time and want to create a jelly that has has raspberries all the way through it pour a little of the jelly mixture into each glass (or into 1 large mould) then add a few raspberries. Put in the fridge and leave to set then repeat, layering until all of the jelly and raspberries are used up.


  1. I love elderflower juice! I was thinking about making a grape and eldeflower compote to go with cheese. I'm definitely going to try the raspberry combination too. Its too hot for cooking, this sounds like a perfect dinner!! :D

  3. Any excuse for elderflower! These look so good. This is pretty much my perfect pudding.
