Pimm’s and sloe gin jellies

These are quite simply PERFECT for summer lunch and dinner parties. They can (must) be prepared in advance, they are flavoursome, and even the most weight conscious women guests will say 'yes'. Use pretty glasses, serve with a sorbet and voilà. This is a Thermomix recipe and while I made the suggested cucumber sorbet I would serve with a berry sorbet in future. I do think the cucumber sorbet would make a lovely between courses palette cleanser.

200g sugar

460g water

30g grated fresh ginger

25g lemon juice

Peel of a lemon

150g Pimm's ( there are some Pimm's variation available now and I used the blackcurrent and elderflower variation)

70g sloe gin ( or gin of your choice)

Gelatine leaves ( read the packet instructions, you'll need enough to set 750g liquid)

200g thinly sliced fresh strawberries

Fresh mint


How to

Dissolve the sugar in the water in TM bowl 100°, 6 minutes, sp 1

Add the grated ginger, lemon peel and lemon juice and chill

Add Pimm's and gin to the chilled mixture

Soak the gelatine leaves in cold water

Put 120g of Pimm's into TM bowl, heat 50° 5 min, sp 1

Squeeze water out of gelatine leaves before adding to the warm liquid in TM bowl, stir in for 90seconds sp 1

Add the gelatine mix to the chilled liquid and strain about half into your dishes. ( you are going to add slice fruit then top with the remainder)

Refrigerate until set

Place the sliced fruit and mint on top before pouring remaining Pimm's mixture on top.

Refrigerate again until set




May we now have some weather more appropriate for Pimm's, jellies or otherwise. Cheers!
