Boysenberry, dessert wine and rosewater jelly
I'm back after a few days away from blogging, been pretty busy with stuff at home this week.
I tried this recipe today, and then discovered G is not a big fan of jelly! The jelly had quite a strong flavour, while not unpleasant, I most likely won't make it again.
Here's the recipe (courtesy of NZ House and Garden).
Makes 6 small glasses/jelly moulds (I did half the quantity).
2 cups frozen/fresh boysenberries
1 cup caster sugar
1 1/2 cups water
2 Tbsp gelatine
1/3 cup hot water
1 cup dessert wine
1 Tbsp rosewater
Mix berries, sugar and first measure of water in a pan, bring to boil, stir to dissolve sugar then simmer for 5 mins. Turn off heat.
In separate bowl mix gelatine with smaller amount of water (hot) stir to dissolve gelatine. Add to hot berry mixture, stirring well.
Add wine and rosewater, stir again. Strain into jug (reserve berries for serving) and pour into moulds or small glasses. Refrigerate until set. Serve with cream and reserved berries.
