Strawberry Jelly

Uncategorized | July 3, 2011 | By

Now I know that Delia will be frowning and tutting at me, but I didn’t make my own jelly for this, I took my inspiration from Delia’s Summer Collection but also from her Cheat cookbook!  So I used a Robertson’s strawbery jelly and added sliced strawberries which had been quickly mascerated in a teaspoon of caster sugar and a squeeze of lime juice.  Set that in a loaf tin lined with clingfilm and you have something quite impressive.

I served it with Mango sorbet, not my own, and it was lovely and refereshing for a warm July day.

    Looks very tasty, Janice 🙂 I'd be tempted to pour a splash of alcohol in it, after seeing a champagne fruit jelly thingy on Come Dine With Me last night. Hopefully the sorbet weather continues 🙂

    It does look impressive. I'm enjoying sorbets in the summer weather too! I like the idea of a mango sorbet – even if it's not your own.

    We take our jelly to work like this in the summer months, set in individual containers. It is a nice treat with fresh berries, looks very pretty ;0)

    There are times when cheating is definitely not frowned upon – it's an essential. This looks fabulous, Janice – and great idea with the mold.

    Used to be allowed to eat the odd cube of jelly when I was little as a treat. Never had it with real strawberries in though – nice idea.
