Pour back the mixture in the saucepan and bring to a gentle boil,  stirring constantly. Boil for 2 minutes on low heat. Remove gelatine from

Put the gelatine leaf in a bowl with cold water. Leave aside.
In a saucepan mix together the sugar and the blueberries and leave to “melt” on low heat.
Cook for about 5 minutes until blueberries release their juice. Remove from heat and add lemon juice. Add strained gelatine leaf and mix to melt the gelatine.

Pour a little of the custard  in each glass. Leave in the fridge to cool down a little, then pour some of the blueberry compote on top.

Merveilles a la framboise et a l’anis (fried biscuits)
200g cake flour
1  organic egg
Pinch of salt
50g raspberries (crushed)
1tblsp of raspberry liqueur
1tblsp aniseed seeds
Icing sugar
Sunflower oil

Put flour and salt on a bench and make a well in the centre.  Add 20g sunflower oil and egg. Mix gently with you finger by incorporating the flour little by little. When the flour is almost all mixed, add raspberries and liqueur , then aniseed seeds. Eventually add 1tblsp of water (or liqueur) if egg is small. The pastry should be soft not dry and not sticky (in that case, add some flour on your bench).
Knead quickly. Leave to rest in the fridge covered with cling wrap for at least 30 minutes.
Roll out the pastry on a floured bench and cut some long forms.
In a saucepan, heat sunflower oil. Deep fry merveilles until golden then remove from oil and sprinkle with icing sugar.

It is important to obtain a soft pastry. The reason why you will have to adjust the recipe by adding moisture (more water or liqueur in that case) OR flour is because flour consistency changes from one brand to another. For example if you use an ordinary plain flour instead of a cake flour, you will need more moisture.
Some flours absorb more liquid than others…
