Fresh Mint Jelly

A crisp and light flavoured Jelly that will suit as an entrée before dinner or as a refreshing sweet after dinner. 

Ingredients

  • 1 x bunch fresh mint leaves, leaves picked (reserve some leaves for garnishing)
  • 200 mL boiling water
  • 1 x 85 g packet Aeroplane Create a Jelly
  • 1 cup (250 mL) boiling water
  • To Serve: mint leaves
  • To Serve: fresh fruit or vegetables

Method

  1. Place mint leaves in a heat proof bowl and pour the boiling water over. Allow to infuse for 5 minutes, then lift leaves out and discard.
  2. In a second medium sized bowl combine Aeroplane Create-a-Jelly crystals with remaining cup of boiling water. Stir to dissolve well.
  3. Add infused mint water, stir well. Place 4 serving glasses onto a tray and divide jelly mixture evenly between glasses, cover and refrigerate until firm (approximately 4 hours).
  4. To serve; garnish with reserved mint leaves and either fresh fruit or for a savoury palate cleanser, with cherry tomatoes and cucumber slices.

Hints

Try infusing Aeroplane Create-a-Jelly crystals with herbs like basil, to complement other fruits and vegetables such as strawberries or tomatoes. So many combinations.
