    Mini Blackberry Jellies

    Prep Time: 20 minutes

    Cook Time: 5 minutes

    Serving Size: 8

    Chilling time: 3-4 hours


    • 225g / 8oz blackberries
    • 1 lemon, rind and juice
    • 75g / 3oz caster sugar
    • 200ml / 7fl oz water
    • 4 sheets leaf gelatine (or 7g / 1/3oz)
    • 6 tbsp of lemonade (or vodka)
    • 50g / 2oz blackberries, to garnish
    • 1 tbsp caster sugar, to garnish
    • 120ml / 4fl oz double cream, to garnish


    1. Add the blackberries, lemon rind and juice, sugar and water to a medium sized saucepan, cover and cook gently for 5 minutes. Meanwhile add the gelatine sheets to a shallow dish, pour over cold water to just cover then leave to soak for 5 minutes.
    2. Scoop the fruit out of the pan with a draining spoon and transfer to 8, 100ml (3½fl oz) vodka shot glasses. Drain the gelatine and add the softened sheets to the warm fruit juice, stir until dissolved. Mix in the lemonade (or vodka). Pour over the fruit in the glasses, leave to cool then transfer to the fridge for 3-4 hours or until set.
    3. When almost ready to serve make the blackberry cream by mashing the blackberries on a plate with the sugar, using a fork. Softly whip the cream in a bowl until it just holds its shape then fold in the blackberries until marbled together. Spoon over the set jellies and serve.
