Triumphant Strawberry and cream Jelly

Description: Description: Use any large bowl you like for this

Reminiscent of childhood, a tower of wobbling jelly is sure to bring a smile to everyone’s face.

Hands-on time 20 min, plus lots of chilling. Cooking time about 5min. serves 10

·         2 x 135g packs strawberry jelly, we used Hartley’s

·         1/8tsp edible gold glitter, optional

·         Oil for greasing, optional

·         100g (31/2oz) caster sugar

·         1 vanilla pod, split lengthways

·         300ml (1/2pint) double cream

·         600ml (1pint) milk

·         8 gelatine sheets

  1. Start by making the jelly. Snip the jelly into cubes and put into a large jug. Pour over 300ml (1/2 pint) boiling water and leave to dissolve, stirring occasionally. Top up the mixture with cold water until there in 1.2litre (21/8 pint). Stir in the glitter, if using.
  2. Pour the strawberry jelly mixture into a 2.7 litre (43/4 pint) non-stick kugelhopf mould or large bowl (if your bowl or mould is not non-stick, grease lightly with a mild oil). Chill until completely set – about 3hr.
  3. Meanwhile put the sugar, vanilla, cream and milk into a pan and heat gently, whisking occasionally to help release the vanilla seeds, until mixture just begins to boil. Take off the heat and leave to infuse for 15 min.
  4. Put the gelatin sheets into a bowl and cover with cold water. Leave to soak for 5 min. Lift the soaked gelatin out of the water (discard water) and add to the cream pan – stir to dissolve (if the cream mixture is not hot enough to dissolve the gelatin, then reheat gently until it dissolves). Lift out the vanilla pod and leave the cream mixture until completely cool – the strawberry jelly needs to be fully set before proceeding.
  5. Gently pour the cream mixture over the set completely – about 5hr.
  6. To serve, turn out the jelly on to a serving plate. If it doesn’t come out easily, dip the base of the mould briefly into a bowl of hot water (taking care no water comes in contract with the jelly). Turn out and serve.

Which chicken to choose?

Description: Description: Which chicken to choose?

It’s worth spending some time selecting your meat. Many packaging labels can be misleading, so read carefully where your chicken comes from and whether it was reared to at least free-range standards. You’ll be supporting farmers, and you’ll taste the difference in texture and flavour.
