Get your jelly on #12 – BERRY FIZZY

Day 12.

Easy Peasy, Berry Fizzy.

Have to keep reminding myself, take picture first before blasting the jelly off into the air! This particular is so soft that the tip snapped off right after I finished filming the boombox test, and I didn’t even get a chance to take a proper shot of the jelly! I was close to not posting this jelly as I wasn’t entirely happy with it, but taste wise is definitely one of my favourites. It is a strawberry jelly mixed in with carbonate soft drink, the result is a BERRY FIZZY!

This jelly is wobbly-licious, the carbonate soft drink makes the raspberry jelly light and fizzy. I’ve made one ages ago using the same technique with moscato champagne, but this time I simply used a fizzy drink such as Sprite.

It is hard to keep the bubbles suspend in the jelly when set, because by the time the jelly set, all the carbonated gas will be already escaped and the drink is flat. There are a few tricks how to incorporate some bubbles back into the jelly and the easiest one which I used, is by whisking the jelly with a skewer when the jelly is half set to reactivate some of the carbonated bubbles in the soft drink again. Simple right? The result is a light, refreshing, fizzy jelly, perfect for the summer. You can also add strawberries and whatever take your fancy really.

Let’s get jiggy with it! This one is a good one. Don’t forget to comment and WIN the Olympus camera and the beautiful autographed jelly mould! :)

And make sure you come back each day for a new tit-illating video! Seriously, there are some really good ones that you simply can’t take your eyes off! :D
