Summer Fruits Jelly

January 09, 2010
It has been very hot here in Perth since Christmas... sometimes the humidity is at its worst!! Little pearls of sweat starts to make its debut... eventhough one has just stepped out of cold shower at 7.30am in the morning!!! Unbelievable...can't wait for autumn..

Miss E decided to make this simple summer fruits jelly to 'cool' down....
This recipe was adapted from Fast Dessert Cookbook, where white wine was used but here we used sparkling apple juice instead... love that 'tingly' taste .....

  • 1 large peach
  • 2 apricots
  • 2 nectarines
  • 8 cherries - halved
  • 1 tablespoon agar-agar powder or 2 tablespoon gelatine
  • 3 cups sparkling apple juice (or white wine)
  • 1/2 cup water

Slice the fruits thinly (except the cherries), arrange in a 4 x 310ml glass.
Using double boil method, mix the agar-agar powder with water, and stir until the powder dissolved. Mix in 1 cup of apple juice. Stir over the heat. Pour the dissolved agar-agar powder into the remaining apple juice. Stir well.... and pour the jelly mixture into the 4 glasses of summer fruits... chill for at least 3 hours....and serve.

Summer fruits are in abundance.... peaches, apricots, nectarines and especially cherries....we love cherries... they are gorgeous!!!
