Cambridge: Slut-Red Raspberries in Chardonnay Jelly

We made this the other day because I'm obsessed with fresh English raspberries. It's a Nigella recipe from Forever Summer, and is quite easy to make.

Firstly, steep some fresh raspberries in a bottle of good fruity chardonnay...
















Then strain the wine off, heat a split vanilla pod in it, take it off the heat and let it infuse.
















The next stage is to remove the vanilla pod from the wine, soften some leaf gelatine in water, squeeze it out, and whisk it into the warm wine. You put the raspberries into little containers, pour the liquid over, and let it set in the fridge overnight.
















Once it's set, you can eat it! We had it with cold double cream, which was heavenly. It's a gorgeous dessert - light and fresh and fruity. One warning though, the little hairs on the raspberries do look quite unattractive suspended in the jelly, so make sure you only use super-clean, fabulous-looking raspberries.
