Wine Jelly Recipe - spread the love!

Wine Jelly with forest berries and Dolce Vita wine? Yes please!

This is a very refreshing and light dessert recipe that, given its berry ingredients, is also full of great antioxidants and other healthy attributes. It’s perfect for a summer dessert with a twist, especially for all the wine lovers out there, who are sure to pick up on plenty of the Dolce Vita flavors - which the gelatin crystallizes in taste and texture.

BEWARE: this recipe calls for plenty of Dolce Vita wine, so it’s an alcoholic dessert that should be consumed by adults only. While most of the wine’s alcohol content may burn off during cooking, it’s still wise to keep this dessert for adult parties only...just in case! 

Wine Jelly: Ingredients List

The ingredients that we will need for our jelly delight are as follows:

  • 1 1/2 pounds of fresh forest berries - raspberries, blueberries, mulberries, blackberries, strawberries. You can do 1/5 of each, or use more or less of whichever berries you prefer
  • two cups of Dolce Vita wine 
  • two to three ounces of brown - depending on how sweet your chosen wine is. With Dolce Vita we will use just two ounces. 
  • three tablespoons of powdered gelatin (widely available at most food stores)

Wine Jelly: Cooking Steps

In a bowl we add six tablespoons of water and we add the three tablespoons of the gelatin powder and we stir slowly and leave it for five to soften. 

We take a pot and put in the Dolce Vita wine and brown sugar. On a low flame we warm up the pot until the sugar melts. 

We turn off the flame, we remove the pot. Then we add the gelatin mix that we previously prepared. We stir the ingredients all together until the gelatin completely dissolves into the mixture homogeneously. We let the mixture cool down. 

After a while, we add all the fruits that we have already washed and dried and cut in pieces (if need, for the strawberries for example). 

We pour our mixture in eight small serving bowls for dessert and we put the bowls into the fridge to set for approximately four to six hours. We serve immediately from the refrigerator after our main meal, with heavy whipped cream on top, if desired.

What pairs well with our new favorite dessert?

A glass of Dolce Vita, naturally!,if we enjoy the sweet wine, or else a delicious sparkling wine, like Spumante Secco to enjoy. 

We’re sure you’ll love the fruity, sweet, and sophisticated tastes that this Dolce Vita Jelly offers up on your table!
