Jelly (or jello) has a bit of a bad rap, but its reputation is undeserved. It's light, cool, refreshing and easy to eat. Perfect for a summer's evening, and this version has the kid's favourite "coming of age".

Ingredients

Berries 3 Cup (48 tbs)
Fruit juice 2 Cup (32 tbs)
Red wine 2 Cup (32 tbs)
Gelatin 10 Gram (mixed in 100 ml of liquid)
Caster sugar 100 Gram

Directions

GETTING READY

1. Start off by drawing a large container of cold water and carefully submerge the gelatin sheets inside and allow them to soften up for five minutes.

2. While the gelatin is soaking, wash, trim and cut up the fruit into small pieces and transfer to the basin that you'll make the jelly in.

MAKING

3. In a large pan, place all the liquid and pour in the sugar.

4. Heat gently while stirring and when the sugar is completely dissolved transfer in the gelatin, sheet by sheet, stirring between each addition. Be sure not to bring the liquid to the boil.

5. Pour the liquid over the strawberries and allow to cool before covering and placing into the refrigerator. Allow to sit in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours to set.

6. If you wish to turn the jelly out, hold in a bowl of warm water for a couple of minutes before covering with a plate and turning upside down.

SERVING

7. Enjoy on its own or with a good ol' scoop of ice-cream!
