Pimm's jelly with strawberry and orange
Sunday 23 June 2013
Well nobody can accuse me of not embracing British tradition… With a twist, of course!
Juice and zest of 2 oranges (to give 200ml/7 fl oz orange juice), plus 1 orange, chopped
75g/3oz caster sugar, plus 1 tbsp
400g/13oz strawberries, roughly chopped
A handful of mint leaves
2 tsp gelatine
100ml/3 ½fl oz Pimm's, plus 1 tbsp
Place the orange zest and juice, sugar, half the strawberries and a small handful of mint leaves into a small saucepan and heat gently over a medium heat until the sugar is dissolved and the strawberries are soft.
Mash the strawberries with the back of a wooden spoon, remove the mint leaves then push the mixture through a sieve into a clean pan.
Add 150ml/¼ pint water and sprinkle over the gelatine. Place over a low heat and stir until the gelatine has dissolved, being careful not to boil. Remove from the heat, stir in the 100ml Pimm's then pour into a plastic container. Chill for four hours, or until set.
Place the chopped orange, remaining chopped strawberries and tablespoon each of caster sugar and Pimm's in a bowl and mix well. Cover and chill in the fridge until needed.
To serve, scoop spoons of the jelly into glasses. Top with the chopped fruit and some extra mint leaves.
