Bellini in Gelatina
Fresh Blackberry and Prosecco Jelly

About This Recipe

Are you looking for a delicious blackberries recipe with a difference? If you are, you’ve found it! Here’s my fresh blackberry and prosecco jelly for you to enjoy.

This has to be the most stylish and yet easy dessert that you will ever make. Not only can you use this dish as a dessert, but you can also serve it as a great aperitif. You can substitute the Prosecco for a good Champagne and if you don’t want to use blackberries, you can use fresh strawberries. If you want to make fresh strawberry purée, just blitz 50g of fresh strawberries with 1 tablespoon of cold water and 1 teaspoon of honey into a smooth purée. Once the dessert is ready, you can decorate the jellies with a touch of whipped cream on top.

Feast your eyes on the finest fresh blackberry and prosecco jelly! It’s straightforward and fun to make this great dish. Simply follow the instructions below and get the perfect result.

Step By Step

Put the sugar in a medium saucepan with 300ml of water and the lemon zest. Heat gently until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat, leave to cool and discard the lemon zest.

Put the lemon juice in a small bowl and sprinkle in the powdered gelatine. Leave to soak for 3–4 minutes. Place the bowl over a pan of gently simmering water, ensuring that the base of the bowl does not touch the water, for a couple of minutes until the gelatine has completely dissolved.

Stir the gelatine into the sugar syrup together with the strawberry purée and the Prosecco. Mix well.

Meanwhile, share out three quarters of the blackberries among six Champagne glasses and carefully pour over enough of the liquid jelly to cover the fruit and chill until set. When the jelly has set, pour over the remaining liquid jelly to the top of the glass and refrigerate for 5 hours until completely set.

Decorate with the reserved blackberries and serve.

Torta di Carciofi e SpinaciArtichoke & Spinach Tart

I absolutely love tarts and it’s a shame that not many people cook them anymore, maybe because it is thought to be quite a difficult dish to prepare. Some of my friends have tried this dish and they say that it’s definitely one of the easiest and tastiest tart recipes that they have ever made. I often choose this kind of recipe when I have a dinner party because if there is any left over, I’ll...

Torta di Polenta con Arance e CointreauPolenta Cake with Oranges & Cointreau

This is such a beautiful cake to enjoy in the afternoon with a cup of coffee or tea. Alternatively, serve it with a dollop of mascarpone on the side as a dessert. My kids, however, won’t thank me for this recipe as they think every dessert should be about chocolate! You can substitute the Cointreau with a citrusy Limoncello if you prefer.

Risotto con zucchini e zafferanoCourgette & Saffron Risotto

Saffron, sometimes referred to as 'red gold' because of its deep ruby-red colour, flourishes in the fertile hills of Sardinia's Medio Campinado province in southwestern Sardinia. The locals use it liberally in their cooking, but given its high price in Britain I tend to use it sparingly and in dishes where it will be one of the star attractions such as this delicately-flavoured risotto. The courgette...

Fusili con ragu di coniglioPasta with Rabbit Ragu

This recipe is very different and worth a try. The flavours are unique compared to what you and your family are probably used to and it really is a wonderful, rich way to make a ragù. Please, whatever you do, don’t just throw away the discarded vegetables. Place them in a saucepan with some passata (sieved tomatoes) and heat it through; then you have created a sauce that can be used to top fish...

Linguine with tinned tuna, olives and chilliLinguine al tonno

Without doubt this has to be one of my father’s favourite pasta dishes. I remember when I used to live with him it was a must-have dish at least once a week but not always with the same shape of pasta. Please make sure that you never use tuna in brine for this recipe and if you like you can add some capers to the sauce.
