  • 1 sachet gelatine



    A colourless, tasteless and odourless setting agent made from the boiled bones, skins and…

  • 450ml strawberry or apple juice
  • 15-18 very ripe strawberries



    Once available in Britain for just a brief period during the summer, strawberries are now a year…

  • whipped cream, for decoration



    Fresh unpasteurised milk quickly separates and the fat rises to the top. This fat layer is then…


  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.

Can you use tinned strawberries in this recipe?

Hello, Tinned strawberries don't have the same texture as fresh ones so we haven't tried them in this recipe but if you want to use them the recipe should work. I hope this helps, Lulu

Thanks Lulu! I was mostly pondering whether the syrup would act as a substitute for strawberry juice, which I can’t find anywhere.

Hi, Yes, I'd use the syrup/juice from the tin and top it up with apple juice. If you can get strawberries cheaply then you can slice them up, sprinkle with sugar and leave them in the fridge overnight, they will then give off some juice which you can mix into apple juice. the sliced strawberries can go into the jelly. I hope this helps. Lulu
