  • 6 leaves of gelatine
  • 2 cups white or red Muscadel
  • 1 drop rose-water
  • 24 fresh, seasonal berries, washed and dried

Soften the gelatine in cold water, remove and squeeze out any excess water. Place in a metal bowl and melt over a saucepan of warm water until dissolved, then remove the bowl from the heat. Whisk in the Muscadel and rose-water.

Rinse 2 large ice trays with cold water and place berries in the centre of each cube. Fill with the Muscadel jelly and set in the refrigerator.

Alternatively, set in a small loaf tin and serve in slices.

Cook’s note: It is important to pat the berries dry to achieve the correct gelatine to water ratio. If you have any doubt about the ratio, add more gelatine.


Chill a bottle of red or white Muscadel. Place a jelly in six shot glasses. Top with chilled Muscadel and serve immediately.
