Homemade Jelly- Beat the Heat

With your responses to my post on Pineapple-Barley Squash I realised that many of you are trying to "Beat the Heat" with full-blown summer in your side of the world as well. So I decided to do a "Beat the Heat" series to fall back on a collection of chilled desserts and drinks.

Ever tried to take a picture of Jelly? It seems to wobble forever! My kids had fun poking it and watching it wobble. And I am feeling quite good at being successful at my first try at homemade jelly.

25gms gelatine
3-4tbs rose syrup/cordial
3-4 tbs honey(according to taste)
3cups water

  • Heat the water in a dish, add the rose syrup and stir well.
  • When the water boils, add honey and the gelatine and stir well. Take off the heat.
  • Keep stirring till you can no longer see any gelatine crystals.
  • Pour into mould and let it set.
  • Once it cools completely, chill.
  • Your jelly is ready to serve!
