Homemade Jelly

I’m not sure about you but when it comes to the weekend I feel that we deserve treats. I don’t go crazy but we normally like to eat gourmet meals all weekend long. First we start with a homemade pizza on Friday night and then Sunday night normally ends with fancy homemade dessert of some kind. I like to make a little something for the kids as well; in my books these weekends need to be celebrated. We all love jelly but I do worry about the packet varieties, they just don’t seem all that natural. So after some research I’ve come up with my own natural recipe. I don’t think I need to tell you that these were all eaten before I had the chance to say ‘enjoy’. 

Preparation time
5 minutes

Cooking time
5 minutes + 4 hours cooling
200mls apple juice 
200mls cranberry juice 
400mls apple juice 
1 tbs edible gelatine 
your choice of fruit

1. In a medium-sized pan, bring 100mls of apple juice to the boil. Add the gelatine and stir until it has dissolved.
2. Cut fruit into bite-sized pieces and place in the bottom of your jelly mould.
3. Carefully combine the boiled and cold juices together in a large jug and pour into your mould.
4. Refrigerate for 4 hours or until jelly has set. Serves 2 adults and 2 kids

Do not use fresh pineapple or kiwi as they prevent the jelly from setting
