Fruity Pimm's Jelly
This very grown up jelly epitomises all that is great about the British summer.
Full of delicious fruit, mint and a sparkling Pimm's jelly, this will delight any dinner party guests.
Why should jellies only be for children's parties? In Victorian England, chefs would compete to see who could make the most elaborate jelly.
Serves 6 people.
