Jelly got a whole lot more grown up with the addition of prosecco. Add cherries and berries for a deliciously grown up dessert.

Ingredients

  • 750 ml bottle prosecco rosé
  • 2 cups (440g) caster sugar
  • 2 cups (300g) fresh cherries, pitted, plus 6 cherries, extra, to serve
  • 8 teaspoons powdered gelatine
  • 500 grams strawberries
  • 125 grams raspberries
  • 125 grams blueberries
  • 2 teaspoons icing sugar
  • cooking-oil spray

Method

  • 1
    Stir prosecco and sugar in a large saucepan over high heat until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil. Add cherries, reduce heat to low; cook, covered, for 3 minutes.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, place 1 cup (250ml) water in a small heatproof jug; sprinkle powdered gelatine over. Stand for 1 minute. Place jug in a medium saucepan of simmering water; stir until gelatine dissolves.
  • 3
    Transfer cherry mixture to a large bowl; stir in gelatine mixture. Cool slightly. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until cooled but not set. Remove from fridge.
  • 4
    Reserve 250g (8oz) strawberries, 10 raspberries and 2 tablespoons blueberries to serve. Hull and halve remaining strawberries; combine with remaining raspberries and blueberries.
  • 5
    Lightly spray six 1-cup (250ml) jelly moulds or glasses with oil. Pour 2 tablespoons of the jelly into each mould. Divide a quarter of the berries among glasses. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until set. Add remaining jelly and berries. Refrigerate overnight or until set.
  • 6
    Top jellies with reserved sliced strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and extra cherries. Dust with icing sugar; serve.

Notes

For one large jelly, lightly spray a 2.5-litre (10-cup) bowl or mould with oil. Pour 1 cup of the jelly into bowl; add a quarter of the berries. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until set. Add remaining jelly and berries to mould; refrigerate overnight. Serve topped with extra berries, if you like.
