    • 2 x 135g packs Hartley’s Strawberry Jelly

    How to make Milky Strawberry Jelly with Summer Fruits

    1. Place the jelly in a small pan with 4 tablespoons of the orange juice and warm over a gentle heat stirring well until dissolved. Or microwave on full power for 1½ minutes.

    2. Thinly slice 6 of the strawberries and place in a 1-liter jelly mold, reserving a few slices to decorate the top. Using a hand-held blender or food processor, purée the remaining strawberries.

    3. Place the strawberry purée, evaporated milk and the jelly mixture in a large measuring jug.Using a whisk, blend together well to aerate until the volume reaches about 1 liter.

    4. Pour the mixture into the jelly mould, allow to cool, then leave to set in a fridge for 2 hours. Turn out the jelly by dipping the mold in hot water briefly first. Serve, scattered with the reserved strawberries plus the blueberries, if using.
