Amelia Freer: Summer berry jellies recipe

July 31st 2016 / Amelia Freer / 2 comments


Enjoy a refreshing dessert with nutritionist Amelia Freer's jelly recipe, including a vegan-friendly option

I love these delightful, easy, summery jellies, making the most of our vibrant seasonal berries. They are not too sweet and are so refreshing. I’ve included a vegan-friendly version for those of you who do not eat gelatine.

Makes 6

RECIPE 1 – The Gelatine

4 leaves of gelatine
450ml elderflower pressé
200g mixed berries
fresh mint leaves, for garnish

Soak the gelatine leaves in a bowl with 100ml of cold water for 4–5 minutes, until they swell and soften. Remove them from the bowl, squeezing out any liquid. Put them into a pan with 3 tablespoons of the elderflower and stir until it melts, then combine with the rest of the elderflower and pour into 6 glasses, placing a mix of berries in each and a small mint leaf or two, if you have some.

Leave to set in the fridge overnight, or for at least 3–4 hours.

RECIPE 2 – The Vegan

450ml coconut water or elderflower pressé
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons agar flakes
200g mixed berries

Place the coconut water, honey and lemon juice in a small pan (or use elderflower, without the honey and lemon). Stir, then sprinkle over the agar flakes and bring to the boil without stirring. Lower the heat and simmer for 5–7 minutes, stirring occasionally until the agar has dissolved. Pour into a heatproof jug and leave to cool for 15–20 minutes.

Divide the berries between 6 small glasses and pour the cooled liquid over the top. Agar will set at room temperature usually within the hour, but these are very nice chilled if made in advance.

The 'vegan' version of this has honey. Honey is not vegan...

How I got my ex husband back,{Best online spell caster Reviews that is Powerful and really} I was going crazy when my husband left me and my two kids for another woman.
My name is Natasha Hayes from UK. My husband and I have been married for about 7 yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and told him my problems and he told me what to do and i did it and he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity Powerful and really spell caster. If you have any problem contact him and i guarantee you that he will help you. He will not disappoint you. Email him at: Unityspelltemple@gmail.com ,or call him on his mobile number: +2348072370762.
