Last year I started making my son jelly from scratch which he loved. It sounds harder to do in theory than it was in practise. We used apple juice or a pure juice and soaked the jelly this way. When I started thinking about lavender month and the types of recipes I would like to try.
Jelly seemed like a brilliant choice to me. I tried this recipe several times with a variety of different ingredients and the recipe below was the best result. Honestly, I did not know how these ingredients would work when put together in a jelly. However the result were so delicious I had to share it with you.
Makes 4 x 125 ml jellies
- Large saucepan
- Measuring jug
- Chopping board
- Sharp knife
- Stirring spoon
- Jelly moulds
- Coconut Water x 250ml
- Orange juice x 250ml
- Gelatin strips x 4
- Lavender stalks x 4 – 6
- Measure the coconut water and orange juice.
- Pour into the saucepan and add the gelatin strips
- Soak for 5 minutes.
- While this is soaking if you want to keep the lavender in then cut it into small pieces and put them into the jelly.
- However, you can just put the lavender in once you start cooking and then remove it when you pour the jelly into the moulds.
- Now put the jelly on a low heat on the hob and stir until the gelatin has melted.
- Once it has melted pour the liquid into the four jelly moulds trying not to spill any.
- Then put the jellies into the fridge and wait until they set.
- It should take overnight for this to happen.
- Finally serve and enjoy.
Coconut Water, Orange and Lavender Jelly is delicious. It’s great as an after dinner treat or as a mid morning or mid afternoon snack. These jellies were sadly not, my son Ted’s favourite. That boy doesn’t know what he’s missing. I enjoyed them and I know you will too. However you decide to eat this jelly, as always, please enjoy. xxx
