This is a grown-up version of kids’ raspberry jelly! The vodka adds a good flavour to the raspberry terrine and the lime syrup adds a lovely kick. The secret is to use arrowroot as this will keep the sauce clear; if you use cornflour to thicken it, it will create a cloudy sauce. I love serving this dish whole as it looks so impressive. You can mix and match the fruit with this recipe – try layers of mango raspberries, strawberries and blueberries. Pineapple is the only fruit which doesn’t work well as it contains an acid which causes the jelly to dissolve, giving you a soup rather than a terrine.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
450g caster sugar
8 gelatine leaves
olive oil, for greasing
70-100ml vodka, to taste
3 x 225g punnets of raspberries

For the sauce:

Quantity Ingredient
150g caster sugar
5 limes, zested and juiced
1 teaspoon arrowroot

Method

  1. Make the jelly by bringing the sugar and 1 litre of water to the boil. Meanwhile, soak the gelatine in some cold water. When the water has boiled, add the squeezed-out gelatine to the pan and mix gently. Pass through a sieve into a bowl and allow to cool until it is just starting to thicken.
  2. Line a terrine mould first with olive oil and then with clingfilm. Pour the vodka into the setting syrup. Spoon a little of the jelly into the base of the terrine and allow it to start to set. Layer the raspberries with a little of the jelly to set each layer. Allow to set.
  3. To make the sauce, place the sugar and lime juice in a pan with 150ml water and bring to a simmer. Dissolve the arrowroot in a little water and, using a whisk, mix it into the pan little by little until you have a sauce consistency. Pass through a sieve and add the zest and allow to cool.
  4. Turn the terrine out of the mould onto a serving plate and remove the clingfilm. Serve the sauce separately.
