Clementine jelly

Clementine Jelly

Serves 6

  • 800 ml clementine juice, (from about 30 clementines)

  • White sugar, to taste

  • Small piece of fresh ginger, peeled

  • 2 gelatine sachets, (23g in total, see note)

  • 2 fresh clementines, peeled and sliced into thin rounds

  • 1 big tsp vanilla syrup, (see note) or a few drops of vanilla extract

  • 200g plain yoghurt

  • Good-quality dark chocolate

Pour the clementine juice into a pan on a high heat to warm through – don't let it boil. Add a little sugar to sweeten – not too much, you still want that zippy clementine flavour.



Grate in a tiny bit of ginger, then grate a bit more onto a chopping board then squeeze it over the pan of juice so you get a few drips of ginger juice in there. Take the juice off the heat. Sprinkle gelatine over the juice, then whisk in quickly.



Arrange 6 small serving glasses on a tray and put 2 clementine rounds in each. Sieve the juice mix into each glass, allow to cool, then refrigerate for about 3 hours, or until set.



To serve, mix the vanilla syrup into the yoghurt and dollop a spoonful on top of each jelly, then grate or shave a few pretty bits of chocolate on top. Note: The amount of gelatine you'll need will vary depending according to the type, so check packet instructions and adjust accordingly. Buy vanilla syrup at good supermarkets and delis.

Nutritional Information Amount per serving:

Calories

Calories are just a unit of energy. If you eat more than you use you can gain weight, or lose it if you don't eat enough. How much you need depends on your weight, gender and how active you are, but it's around 2,000 a day.

Carbs

Carbs are a great source of energy and, excluding foods such as potatoes, are made from grains - like bread, pasta and cereal. We all need carbs, but try to make them all wholegrain by sticking to brown bread, rice and pasta - they are much more nutritious.

Sugar

We all deserve a treat sometimes, but try to limit your sugar intake. Most of your sugar should come from raw fruit and milk, because they give us lots of nutrients too. Always check food labels so you know how much sugar you're eating.

Fat

We all need to eat a small amount of fat because it protects our organs and helps us grow. But we need to be careful about how much fat we eat and what kinds of fat, because in higher levels it's associated with weight gain, diabetes, cancer and heart disease.

Saturates

Saturated or "bad fats" are in beef, pork, chicken skin, butter, cream and cheese. Too much can be bad for our heart and cholesterol levels, but unsaturated or "good fats" in fish, nuts, avocados and some oils can help keep our hearts healthy if eaten in moderation.

Protein

Protein helps our muscles to grow and repair, as well as providing you with essential amino acids. When it comes to protein, try to eat leaner sources such as chicken and fish or non-meat sources such as eggs, dairy, beans, nuts, seeds, tofu and pulses.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH

Close

Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.

When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
