Recipe created in July 2011
Few years back, when I saw Jamie Oliver making a jelly that has bubbles set within, I was struck! I want to try this out. Not the recipe, but the method.
I used soft drinks instead of champagne so that it will be kid friendly. It doesn't look too fizzy, maybe my fruits were way too cold, some were actually frozen, like my blackberry. It was only the strawberry that has the most bubbles stuck on it and it was only chilled, not frozen. Just like when you pour a cold coke out and a room temp coke out into your cup, the fizzling effect differs. Maybe I should try room temp 7-up next time instead of cold 7-up to get more fizz.
It's a nice jelly and there's only very mild fizzling in the mouth when you eat it..but it's still fun.
Fizzy Fruit Jelly
Recipe source: Wendyywy
Inspired by : Jamie Oliver
1 Tbsp gelatin
Chilled Fresh fruits (I used strawberries, orange segments and blackberries)
*Do not use pineapples, kiwi or calamansi. They will cause the jelly not to set.
1. Place four 6oz ramekins in the fridge.
2. Place 30gm water in a bowl. Sprinkle gelatin over water. Let it sit for 2 minutes.
3. Meanwhile bring 75gm water and sugar to boil. Pour over bloomed gelatin. Stir and make sure gelatin dissolves. Leave it aside to cool down totally.
4. Prepare fruits and put into cooled ramekins and place them back into the fridge.
5. When gelatin solution has cooled down, pour in 7up/sprite and give it a quick stir, but not too much.
6. Immediately pour into the ramekins.
7. Chill until set, say for about 5 hours.
8. To serve, dip ramekins briefly in hot water and overturn onto serving plate.
