CORE Spiced Fruit Cup Jelly

Pictured without banana, will update when latest batch sets
3 June - I ate it without checking the picture quality - they were too dark to use. So meanwhile, imagine some banana floating on the top :)


A lovely jelly for snack or dessert

Jelly with fruit always reminds me of my nanna. She was diabetic and made jelly with bananas every time we came to visit.

Serves: 2-3

Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients:
  • 1 sachet diet raspberry jelly
  • 12 grapes
  • 1 small banana
  • 3TB frozen berries
  • allspice or cinnamon
  • 1 tea bag, English Breakfast

Method:
Pour 1 cup boiling water into jug or bowl. Jiggle tea bag 4 - 6 times and remove.
Dissolve jelly in tea.
Add a pinch of all spice or cinnamon.
Top up with 200 ml water.
Get out 2 or 3 small tubs or glass bowls.
Cut grapes into halves, removing seeds if necessary and add to bowls.
Slice banana into bowls
Add 1 TB frozen berries to each bowl.
Pour in jelly, stir and set.

Not on Core? The total for this recipe is 1.5 points, or 1/2 point per serve

Note 1 - because of the banana, this should be eaten in 1-2 days

Note 2 - No fresh fruit? Add 2 TB of drained tinned fruit to each bowl.
If using tinned fruit, cut water down a little more to 400ml total or it may not set very firm

I read this and thought "she wants me to put a *tea bag* in jelly?!?"

But then I thought "jelly isn't much of a committment - all I have to lose was 5 minutes and $2 of ingredients..."

Boy was I wrong!

This is really nice and makes boring jelly quite "exciting".

Snack time mmmm...

Is actually tasty and a good, cheap Core snack, especially topped with a dollop of yoghurt
