Red Wine Jelly

Red Wine Jelly, originally uploaded by michellechafin.

This is divine!!! Red wine jelly. My sister in-law made this when we visited her in Melbourne.

I now make this every Christmas for a treat.

The recipe includes:
3 1/2 cups of red wine (I use the best wine from Margaret River)
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 pack of pectin
4 1/2 cups of sugar

Put red wine, lemon juice and pectin in a large pan and bring to boil. Then add the sugar.

Prepare your jars and place them in a tray with boiling water. Put the jelly mixture in the jars and straight into the fridge.

Serving suggestions light biscuits with cream cheese and place jelly on top. And experience the sensational taste.

Another yummy festive treat.

1 can condensed milk 395g
1 pack of milk arrowroot
2 tsp of cocoa
optional dash of rum (real is the best)
and coconut for topping.

Crush biscuits. Add cocoa and condensed milk - best to use hands to mix in. Add the rum.

Make balls and roll in coconut.

A very simple and yummy festive treat.

One of my favourite restaurants is Indiana's at Cottesloe beach Western Australia. Very popular with locals and tourist, the weather is just beautiful at the moment.. sun shining perfect for enjoying the magnificent sunsets at the beach.

The whole decor in the restaurant I love!!! Once in the restaurant you feel like you are floating on the ocean....I think a few visits over summer time will be a must!
