A spooky fruit and gelatin recipe straight from Dracula’s kitchen. Wash your hands before you start! Always have a grown-up in the kitchen with you when you cook. Ages 8 and up.
QUANTITY Makes 3–4 small glasses (tubs)
• 1¼ oz packet unflavored gelatin (enough to set 2½ cups liquid); For a vegetarian version, use agar-agar, following the instructions on packet
• 1½ cups blueberries or blackberries, or any fruit you wish
• 2¼ cups dark red or blue berry juice (e.g. blueberry or cranberry)
• ¼ cups boiling water
• Mixing bowl
• Measuring cup
• Containers (for gelatin)
1. Wash the fruit and pat dry with a paper towel.
2. Put the gelatin into the measuring cup. Pour ¼ cup boiling water over the gelatin and stir carefully with a spoon, to dissolve it.
3. Add the berry juice to the dissolved gelatin so that it fills the measuring cup up to 2½ cups.
4. Divide the fruit between the containers and pour the gelatin mixture over the fruit.
5. Put Dracula’s gelatin in the fridge for about 45 minutes to set.
Tip: Add more fruit than gelatin for set fruit.
