2) Give a stir and allow to stand at room temperaturefor 6 to 8 hours. Cover and refrigerate for at least a day before using.
3) If you have no intention to prepare,but prefer to use readymade,store immediately after buying.

4) Separate 6 to 9 of the prettiest berries.
5) Take a bowl and put the rest of the berries in it, also add the remaining ingredients and whisk with an electric mixer at moderate speed, or by hand with a wire whisk, until the mixture becomes stiff.
