Broken Glass

This simple recipe is so much fun to make with the kids! It is a great little cooking activity to do with them when you are looking at colours.

Preparation Time: 30 minutes +
3 x 85g packets jelly in, red, green, yellow
375ml pineapple juice
1 1/2 tablespoons gelatine or equivalent from the sachets
300ml thickened cream
3 cups hot water

  1. Set jellies individually using 1 cup of hot water with each jelly.
  2. When set, cut into small cubes.
  3. Dissolve gelatine in half the pineapple juice over a gentle heat or for 60 seconds in microwave.
  4. Stir until dissolved. Once dissolved add remaining juice and chill for about 10 minutes. Do not let it set.
  5. Mix pineapple juice with cream and then add cut up jellies.
  6. Rinse jelly mould in water and without drying it pour it all in mould and refrigerate until set.
  7. Cut into small servings and enjoy!

* You can use a Tupperware mould and the jelly comes to the top when set and on a plate it looks like a mosaic of coloured glass.
