- Pour two-thirds of a bottle of Champagne with the caster sugar into a saucepan and bring to the boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar.
- Soak the gelatine in cold water for about five minutes until soft. Drain and squeeze out the excess water.
- When the Champagne is hot, remove from the heat and add the gelatine, whisking until dissolved and leave to cool.
- Once the jelly is cool, stir in the remainder of the bottle of Champagne and pour over the blueberries in your chosen dish or glasses.
- I like to serve this Champagne jelly with an exotic fruit salad in a ginger syrup.
- This dish is a good choice for those with a dairy-free diet.
Cooking time: 1 hour 30 minutes
