Berry Blog

We love berries. We eat them every day. Sometimes we cook them, sometimes we eat them straight out of the packet. This blog is our way of sharing and showing off some of the ways we use our berries. We've prepared the recipes in our test kitchen - which doubles as our staff kitchen. We hope you enjoy these recipes and ideas as much as we do.

WITCHES' BREW
INGREDIENTS
HOW TO MAKE THIS
SOPHIA'S WITCHES' BREW
1 pack Orchard Gold raspberries or smoothie berries
2 packs raspberry jelly 
2 tablespoon gelatine extra
2 Disposable latex-free rubber  gloves (washed carefully, both  inside and out, then turn the   glove inside out)
2 litres sparkling water
1 litre lemonade
1 litre ginger ale
sweet and sour jelly fruit worms or spiders to serve.

This mixture makes up 2 frozen hands.  You could make 1 frozen hand and pour the rest into a bowl to set.

 
Put the raspberry jelly mixes into a large bowl and add the extra gelatine.  Make up with 3 cups of boiling water and stir until dissolved.
 
Stir in the Orchard Gold frozen berries.  Let the mixture cool and thicken slightly.
 
Pour the berry jelly mixture into the gloves, leaving enough room to tie off the gloves.  Tie the top of each glove securely with kitchen string.  Freeze until solid - this can be done several days before.
 
To serve, cut the glove away from the frozen jelly to leave a red hand which should be leant on the side of a punch bowl, fingers up.  Pour in the sparkling water and lemonade  and serve with jelly fruit worms or spiders floating on top.
