Method

  1. Ask a grown-up to put 6 tsp boiling water into a jug. Sprinkle on the gelatine, then whisk carefully until it dissolves.

  2. Pour in the juice and whisk, making sure it’s all mixed in.

  3. Pull the green hulls out of the strawberries. Use a knife to cut them into slices or small chunks.

  4. Put some pieces of strawberry into 6 glasses leaving a few to decorate at the end. They should be full but with plenty of room around them.

  5. Pour the juice into 6 glasses, filling them almost to the top. Put them on a plate or tray in the fridge to set. They will take about 4 hours to set.

  6. When the jellies are set, decorate with whipped cream and extra strawberries.

I did make these again, but still with the powder and after reading the other comment and stirring it a lot more this time it turned out perfectly, I was very pleased!

Nice jellies, but the gelatine did set to the bottom rather. Another time I think I'd use gelatine leaves which are more reliable than powder.

My six year old daughter enjoyed making this and suggested other flavours and fruits for future jellies. Just make sure that the geletine is completely whisked into the water and juice to ensure an even set.
