Fizzy Fruit Jelly - Jelly Week # 2


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.
Not until lately did I.
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
30gm water
30gm sugar
75gm water
250gm Sprite/7up

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.

  21. Another very lovely creation, this is so much healthier than cakes huh! Been eating too much lately, have to cut back!:P

    ReplyDelete
  22. Tangmi,
    I don't think u can, because agar sets at a higher temperature, you can't let it sit until room temp and mix with the fizzy drink.


    Sherleen,
    U didn't see the oxygen tank meh?


    爱丝特,
    Thanks to Jamie for inspiring me


    Elin,

    Set them in glass ramekins looo... then easier to display w/o the need of early unmoulding

    ReplyDelete
  30. Hi Wendy, one thing I really love about your blog besides your great recipes is your prompt and good advice. Thanks heaps!

  31. Wendy, can I use small plastic container to chill? Can I use grapes?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Jes,
    Grapes should be fine.
    Plastic container then u scoop with spoon instead of unmoulding
