Blueberry jelly with scented geranium recipe

Blueberry jelly with scented geranium

If jellies remind you of thick, gelatinous mounds of sweet chewy nothingness, you are in for a surprise. These are deliciously sophisticated berry desserts that look really stylish at the end of a dinner party. You'll get loads of protective chemicals from the blueberries, volatile oils from the geranium leaves and calcium and good bacteria from the live yoghurt. (Serves 4)

White caster sugar: 110g

Sweet geranium leaves: 10, large

Sweet white wine: 200ml

Lemon juice: 1 tablespoon

Powdered gelatine: 2 teaspoons

Fresh blueberries: 225g

Natural live yoghurt: 275g

Runny honey: 3 tablespoons

Put the sugar and half the geranium leaves into a saucepan with the wine / Bring slowly to the boil and simmer for 2 minutes / Cool, remove the geranium leaves and add the lemon juice / Put the gelatine into a bowl and add water according to the packet instructions / Put the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water and stir until dissolved / Pour the syrup onto the gelatine and add the blueberries / Ladle the mixture into 4 moulds or ramekin dishes and leave to set in the fridge for 2 hours / Put the rest of the geranium leaves in the small bowl of a blender and whiz until fine / Add the yoghurt and honey and whiz until combined with leaves / Pour some of the yoghurt mix onto 4 plates and turn out the jellies on top.

Babies will love their own version of this dessert, but make theirs with water rather than wine,make sure the blueberries are well mashed and that there are no large pieces of herb in the yoghurt.
