Method:

1.) Slice 400 g (14 oz) of the strawberries and add to a saucepan with the sugar and 120 ml (4 fl oz) water, cover and cook gently for 5 minutes until the fruit is softened.

5.) Gradually stir the gelatine into the fruit puree then mix in the lemon juice and leave to cool.

6.) Slice the remaining strawberries or chop if large, stir into jelly mixture then pour into 6 x 150 ml ( ¼ pint) individual moulds or one large dish. 

7.) Stand moulds or dish on a baking tray then chill in the fridge for 4 hours or until set.

To Serve:

Dip each mould in hot water and count to 10, take out of the water, loosen the edge of the jelly with a wetted finger, invert mould on to a serving plate, holding mould and plate, jerk to release, remove mould and repeat with other moulds.

Decorate with tiny sugar flowers or hearts and serve with a little cream or custard.
