Autumn spiced apple cider jelly/jello

I thought you might like an Autumnal version of the great and mighty jelly or if you live over the Atlantic Ocean, jello. I love making grown up versions of childhood favourites and it would put a smile on any adults face at a party…who doesn’t love jelly and combined with alcohol, it’s an all round winner.

autumn spiced apple cider jelly/jello

250ml apple cider
400ml apple juice
6 gelatine leaves
1 cinnamon stick
1 bay leaf
4 cloves
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
3 tablespoons of muscavado sugar

Put the cider in a bowl and soak the gelatine leaves for 4 minutes. Pour the apple and lemon juice into a pan and simmer along with the cinnamon, cloves, bay leaves and sugar for 5 minutes. Take off the heat and one by one add the soaked gelatine leaves, stirring after each one. Leave for five minutes to cool then pour in the cider you used to soak the gelatine leaves and mix well. Leave to cool in the pan so that the spices have time to infuse. When mostly cooled pour the mixture through a sieve into your glasses and leave to set in the fridge. Serve with cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
