Season's Greetings Jelly Recipe

Season's Greetings Jelly Recipe

Ingredients: Serves 10

225 g/8 oz/1 packet of dried fruit salad

50 g/2 oz glace (candied) cherries

300 ml water
15 ml/1 tbsp brandy
2 packets of black cherry flavored jelly (jello) tablets

50 g/2 oz plain (semi-sweet) chocolate
A few holly leaves
150 ml double (heavy) cream, whipped


Soak the fruit salad and cherries in the water and brandy for at least 3 hours or overnight. Drain off any liquid into a measuring jug. Chop the fruit, discarding any stones (pits). Make up the liquid to 1 liter with water. Dissolve the jelly tablets in a little of the measured liquid in a saucepan (or dissolve in a bowl in the microwave). Remove from the heat and stir in the remaining liquid. Chill until the consistency of egg white. Stir in the chopped fruit and turn into a wetted 1.25 litre pudding basin. Chill until set.

Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in a small bowl over a pan of hot water or in the microwave. Dip the holly leaves in the chocolate to coat on one side. Leave to dry on a sheet of greaseproof (waxed) paper. Chill until firm, then gently peel off the holly to leave chocolate leaves. When ready to serve, dip the basin briefly in a bowl of hot water, then turn the jelly out on to a serving plate. Pipe or spoon the whipped cream on top and decorate with the chocolate holly leaves.
