  • For the jelly
  • 170ml water
  • 111g caster sugar
  • zest of 1 orange
  • 6.5g sachet of gelatine
  • 200ml summer fruit cup (we used Pimms)
  • 200ml lemonade
  • For the topping
  • cucumber, orange, strawberries, raspberries & mint
  • 227g Rodda's clotted cream
  • You will need
  • 6 x jam jars


  • Place the water and sugar in a pan. Grate in the zest of the orange and place over a medium heat to dissolve the sugar. Once the liquid is warm, whisk in the gelatine until smooth.
  • When the gelatine is dissolved, pass the liquid through a fine sieve into a clean jug. Add the summer fruit cup and lemonade, gently stirring to combine.
  • Pour into the 6 prepared jam jars.
  • Add slices of cucumber, orange, strawberry, and raspberry to the top of the jellies. Place in the fridge and chill until set. This will take at least a couple of hours.
  • When ready to serve add a dollop of Rodda’s Cornish clotted cream to the top of each jar and garnish with mint leaves.
