This is very fancy-looking served in wine glasses. Champagne-based gelatin dessert with strawberries and blueberries. Posted for ZWT 2006. Time does not include allowing the gelatin to refrigerate until set.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl, pour 2 cups champagne or sparkling white wine, and allow the bubbles to subside.
  2. Sprinkle the gelatine over the top in an even layer. Leave until the gelatine is spongy - do not stir.
  3. Place the remaining champagne in a large saucepan. Add the sugar, lemon and orange rinds, and heat gently, stirring until all sugar is dissolved.
  4. Remove the pan from the heat. Add the gelatine mixture and stir until thoroughly dissolved. Leave the jelly to cool completely, then remove the lemon and orange rind.
  5. Divide the strawberries and blueberries among eight 1/2 cup wine glasses or clear bowls and pour the jelly over them.
  6. Chill until the jelly has fully set. Remove from the fridge 15 minutes before serving.

Definitely dinner-party material! This is just so elegant-looking and not at all difficult to make. I used Prosecco for the sparkling wine and also added some small cubes of melon, along with the strawberries and the last of my blueberries. Delicious, cooling...perfect!
