Champagne and Summer Fruit Wedding Jelly

Source: The Martha Stewart Show, April 2011


  • 5 sheets of gelatin, cut into pieces
  • Scant 2 cups Champagne
  • Scant 1/4 cup superfine sugar
  • Dash of freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup small fruits, such as blueberries, raspberries, or grapes, rinsed


  1. Place gelatin in a heatproof bowl and add enough Champagne to cover (about a scant 1/2 cup); let stand 10 minutes. Place bowl over (but not touching) simmering water, stirring occasionally, until gelatin has melted; stir in sugar until dissolved.

  2. Stir another scant 1/2 cup Champagne into gelatin mixture and strain through a fine mesh sieve into a large liquid measuring cup. Strain lemon juice through sieve and add enough Champagne to gelatin mixture to make 2 cups.

  3. Place fruits in the bottom of a 2-cup mold. Add one-third of the gelatin mixture and transfer mold to refrigerator. Refrigerate until fruit is set, about 2 hours. Add remaining gelatin mixture to mold and return to refrigerator until set, 2 to 4 hours more.

  4. Moisten a serving plate with water. To unmold, set the mold in a bowl filled with warm water until the jelly around the edge has melted just slightly (this can take anywhere from 2 to 30 seconds). Invert mold onto prepared serving plate. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.
