Instructions

How to prepare the gelatine:

  • Put gelatine sheets in a blow, cover with water and add ice cubes
  • Leave for 5 minutes until they turn soft.
  • In a small saucepan, heat small amount of the sparkling water until it begins to simmer.
  • Gently, squeeze the gelatine and add it to the warm sparkling water.
  • Whisk gently until gelatine has dissolved completely.
  • Remove it from the heat and then add the remaining sparkling water.
  • Pour this liquid into a jug to be poured over the fruits.

How to prepare the fruits:

  • Take a medium-sized loaf tin and line it with 3 layers of plastic wrap to be able to cover all the sides.
  • Peel and cut all the fruits into bite size pieces, except for the blueberries and raspberries.
  • Gently mix the fruits together in a large bowl, to avoid getting bruised.
  • Place the fruits into the plastic wrap coated loaf tin you can arrange them one by one.
  • Arrange the bottom layer with the smallest, prettiest-shaped fruit first as this will be on top when the terrine is turned out.
  • Continue to fill the loaf tin with cut fruits until 5 cm before the top of the pan.
  • Pour the entire liquid over the fruits.
  • Now lay a sheet of cling film over the terrine and put it in the fridge for approximately 1 hour.

Serve method:

  • To make the Mascarpone cheese topping, mix the cheese with the whipping cream and vanilla extract or fresh vanilla if available.
  • When you are ready to serve, turn out the terrine on to a plate, and cut it into slices
  • Serve the plate with the mixture of Mascarpone cheese and vanilla or ice cream.
  • You can also sprinkle with some fresh mint and few pieces of strawberry.

Enjoy!
