    French Tart's Note:

    This is one of my favourite recipes, when the soft fruit season arrives, I try to make this at least once......and it is STUNNING if served as the finale to a dinner party. This is an unashamed copy of a recipe by Delia Smith, with very few modifications of my own, as she gives such great ideas and suggestions on how to make this elegant and LOW fat dessert. The directions may seem long-winded, but they are really just useful tips on how to weight the terrine down overnight. Serve this in slices with a red berry coulis and crème fraîche or cream. Fruit juice can be used if this is being served to children or to anyone who does not drink alcohol - I suggest a red fruit juice.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 8-10


    Fruit T ...

    Units: US | Metric

    For the fruit


    1. 1
      In addition to the ingredients, you will also need two 2 lb (900 g) loaf tins, 7½ x 4¾ inches x 3½ inches deep (19 x 12 cm x 9 cm deep), preferably non-stick but anyway with a good surface.
    2. 2
      First, prepare the fruit: remove the stalks and halve the strawberries if they are any larger than a quail's egg. Then mix the fruits together in a large bowl, being very gentle to avoid bruising them.
    3. 3
      In a small saucepan heat half the rosé wine until it begins to simmer, then whisk the sugar and gelatine into it. Make sure that everything has dissolved completely before adding the remaining wine and the lime juice. Then pour the liquid into a jug and allow it to cool. While that is happening, lay the mixed fruit in one of the loaf tins – and it is worth arranging the bottom layer with the smallest, prettiest-shaped fruit as this will be on top when the terrine is turned out.
    4. 4
      Next, pour all but 5 fl oz (150 ml) of the liquid over the fruit. Now lay a sheet of clingfilm over the tin, place the other tin directly on top, then put two unopened tins of tomatoes or something similar to act as weights into the top tin and put the whole lot into the fridge for about 1 hour, or until it has set. Then warm up the remaining 5 fl oz (150 ml) wine mixture and pour it over the surface of the terrine. Re-cover with clingfilm and return to the fridge overnight to set firm.
    5. 5
      When you are ready to serve, turn out the terrine by dipping the tin very briefly in hot water and inverting it on to a plate. Use a very sharp knife (also dipped first into hot water) to cut it into slices. Serve with red berry coulis, chilled pouring cream, crème fraîche or Greek yoghurt.

      I made this wonderful terrine months ago and never rated it! It was absolutely fabulous, not to mention beautiful. Everyone was so impressed at how lovely this turned out, and they thought it looked much more difficult than it actually was! Since I was serving this to my children, I made it with cranberry juice rather than the sparkling rose wine. Pay special attention to instruction 3, because you do want the more beautiful pieces of fruit to be visible on top when you remove it from the pan. Thank you, FT, for posting this delicious dish!
