When Pago sent us a box of their natural fruit juices in the post I can honestly say that I was taken aback by the huge variety of flavours they offer. Usually, the supermarket shelves are limited to your standard OJ, Apple Juice and Cranberry (if you’re lucky) as well as various forms of ‘juice drink’ that are usually packed with added sugar. Pago on the other hand pride themselves on offering a range of natural flavours for every taste.
Pago juices include Mango, Peach, Pineapple, Cherry, Blackcurrant and even Strawberry. But rather than simply reviewing each of these flavours, we thought we’d try something a little different and make some fun fruit jellies that you can make at home..
Pago Apple & Blackberry Jelly (with Crumble)
1 bottle of Pago Cloudy Apple Juice
1-2 sheets of Gelatine
Cream or Cream Substitute
Small Piece of Ginger (optional)
50g of cold butter
50g of demerara sugar
100g of plane flour
How to make the jelly
Soak the gelatine for five minutes in cold water, or as per manufacturer’s instructions.
Gently warm the juice just enough to warm through (Do not boil)
Squeeze the water from the gelatine and add to the juice mix and stir until dissolved. Pour the juice mix into your chosen glass or dessert bowl and allow this to cool. When cooled, put in the fridge for around five hours or until set.
How to make the crumble topping
Pre-set the oven to 180%
In a bowl gently rub butter into the flour and sugar to resemble bread crumbs.
Spread the mixture out on a baking tray and bake for around 15/20 mins or until golden
Note – Every five minutes break the mixture up to create a chunky crumb; this will help to make a crisp crumble,
remove and allow this to cool.
Top the set jelly with blackberry’s or apple chosen fruit, then top with a dollop of cream finally sprinkle with your crumble mix and enjoy!
