Cooking with Kids: Strawberry Jellies

Ingredients (makes 6):

  • 1 sachet gelatine
  • 450ml strawberry or apple juice
  • 15-18 very ripe strawberries
  • whipped cream, for decoration


  1. Ask a grown-up to put 6 tsp boiling water into a jug. Sprinkle on the gelatine, then whisk carefully until it dissolves.
  2. Pour in the juice and whisk, making sure it’s all mixed in.
  3. Pull the green hulls out of the strawberries. Use a knife to cut them into slices or small chunks.
  4. Put some pieces of strawberry into 6 glasses leaving a few to decorate at the end. They should be full but with plenty of room around them.
  5. Pour the juice into 6 glasses, filling them almost to the top. Put them on a plate or tray in the fridge to set. They will take about 4 hours to set.
  6. When the jellies are set, decorate with whipped cream and extra strawberries.
