Recipe by twissis
From THE SALAD BOOK by Michele Evans, this recipe would be spectacular if used as part of brunch, salad course or dessert. It will make a 3 1/2 cup mold as written, but can be halved or divided into smaller mold forms. (Time does not include refrigeration time)
- 1 cup white wine (A Riesling will be my choice)
- 1 tablespoon unflavored gelatin (unflavored, powdered)
- 1 cup water
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1⁄4 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 cup strawberry (sliced)
- 1⁄2 cup peach (sliced)
- 1⁄2 cup cherries (pitted)
Directions See How It's Made
- Put 1/2 cup water into a sml saucepan, add gelatin & allow to soak for a few minutes.
- Place saucepan over a low heat & stir till the gelatin dissolves. Stir in the lemon juice & sugar.
- Continue stirring till the sugar dissolves & remove the pan from the heat.
- Add the remaining 1/2 cup of water & the wine. Refrigerate till the mixture develops a syrup consistency.
- Add fruits, mix gently & spoon the jelly into a 1 qt mold or smaller molds of choice.
- Refrigerate & chill thoroughly till well-set. Unmold & serve.
- SERVING SUGGESTIONS: For brunch, serve w/scones, bagels or English muffins. As a salad course, serve atop greens & use a poppy seed or other complimentary dressing. As a dessert, serve w/cheese & crackers -- or -- baguette slices topped w/cheese of choice & the jelly as a dessert bruschetta. A sml dish of choc mints would make a nice combo w/either choice.
- NOTE: IMO, the fruits used are suggestions & others can be subbed. I will prob use a combo of green & red grapes in place of the cherries. Kiwi segments could also be used.
