    Our choice of Australian Honey

 

Your Equipment

  • 1-3 teaspoons herbal tea -(depending on taste preference)

  • 250 ml boiling filtered water

  • 5 Tablespoon real gelatin powder

  • Measuring jug

  • Silicon moulds or ice cube trays

    * Note: this mixture made 2 ice cube trays but may vary with chosen size and shape

  • Teapot – if using herbal tea

 

Method

1.  Spoon the loose herbal tea leaves/herbs into your tea pot, add 250mls of  boiling water and leave to steep for 5-10 minutes.

 

2. Combine tea/juice in a saucepan with optional honey or Rice malt syrup until dissolved over low heat.

 

3.  Slowly start to sprinkle gelatin 1 Tsp at a time stirring lightly to avoid gelatin clumps.

I like to create a gently whirl pool and continue to sprinkle the gelatin into the centre until completely dissolved

 

4. Continue to stir mixture on medium heat for 5 minutes

5. Carefully fill silicon moulds with mixture

allow to cool for 1 minute

* You can start to see them beginning to set by this point :)

 

6. Place into the refrigerator/freezer to cool and set

 

7. 30-40minutes Pop them out and ENJOY

 

8. They should keep for a week in the

refrigerator in a glass jar or tight lid container

– although to be honest- they never last a week so i can’t 100% vouch for that!! :)

 

Enjoy the nature’s sweetness and Bee Delicious!!
