photo by Izy Hossack
- Ready In:
- 1 liter champagne or 1 liter sparkling white wine
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons gelatin
- 1 cup sugar
- 4 slices lemon rind
- 4 slices orange rind
- 1 2⁄3 cups small strawberries, hulled
- 1 2⁄3 cups blueberries
- In a bowl, pour 2 cups champagne or sparkling white wine, and allow the bubbles to subside.
- Sprinkle the gelatine over the top in an even layer. Leave until the gelatine is spongy - do not stir.
- Place the remaining champagne in a large saucepan. Add the sugar, lemon and orange rinds, and heat gently, stirring until all sugar is dissolved.
- 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.
- Divide the strawberries and blueberries among eight 1/2 cup wine glasses or clear bowls and pour the jelly over them.
- Chill until the jelly has fully set. Remove from the fridge 15 minutes before serving.
