9 fl oz / 250 ml plus 1 tbsp water

1 tsp lime juice

1 tsp orange flower water
Herbs and Spices as listed above
Mix the arrowroot with a tablespoon of cold water and stir well. Set aside. Bring rest of water to boil in a saucepan. Stir in the sugar until it has dissolved. Put the heat on low so the mixture is just simmering. Take your arrowroot mixture and stir again if it has separated at all, then add to the simmering water. Keep stirring whist you do this, and continue stirring until the mixture thickens and becomes clear.
Add your flavouring and any colouring. Put any fruit that you are using into a jelly mould or glass dish / dishes and pour over the liquid jelly. Leave to set (best in fridge). Serve chilled.
