To make the icing, mix the icing sugar, jam and rose water together, thinning with a bit of hot water until the desired consistency is reached. Dip the madeleine into the icing and place on a wire rack. Mix the peppercorns and castor sugar together and sprinkle over the madeleines. Serve immediately.
