  • 170g (¾ cup) sugar

METHOD

  1. Mix the gelatine with the 60ml cold water in a small bowl. Set aside to soften.
  2. Combine the remaining water with the sugar in Chef Series II 2.5L saucepan. Stir and bring to the boil, reduce and simmer for about 4 minutes until volume has reduced slightly and mixture looks a little syrupy.
  3. Zest the lemon using the Cooks Maid then juice the lemon. You will need about 45ml juice.
  4. Stir softened gelatin into hot syrup until dissolved then add the gin, lemon zest and juice. Pour mixture into a jug or pitcher for easy pouring.
  5. Place mould on a baking tray, pour mixture into each cavity of the mould and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or until set.
  6. When ready to unmould, gently release sides of each jelly then pop out from the base.
