    • 450 gm Caster sugar, (1lb)
    • 1 lt Water, (35fl ounce)
    • 1 lt Leaves of gelatine, (35fl ounce)
    • 2 x Mangos
    • 3 x Punnets of strawberries
    • 2 x Punnets of raspberries
    • 2 x Punnets of blueberries
    • 20 gm Fresh basil leaves, (3/4oz)
    • 150 ml Water, (5fl ounce)
    • 4 x Limes, juice and zest Arrowroot


    1. Firstly make the jelly by bringing the water and the sugar to the boil and soak the leaves of gelatine in some cool water. When the water had boiled add in the gelatine to the pan and mix gently. Pass through a sieve and place in a bowl and allow to cold till it is just starting to thicken.
    2. While the jelly is cooling peel and slice the mango into thin strips.
    3. Remove the tops from all but 1/2 a punnet of the strawberries leaving the small ones left, then slice all the rest nice and thin.
    4. Line a terrine mould first with extra virgin olive oil and then with clingfilm and place the vodka into the setting syrup. Spoon a little of the jelly in the base of the terrine and allow to set, then layer each of the fruits in layers with a little of the jelly to set each layer. Then in some the layers add in a layer of fresh basil leaves set with some the jelly. Once the terrine is full of fruit top with a layer of jelly and place in the fridge and allow to set.
    5. To make the sauce: Place the water, sugar and lime juice in a pan and bring to a simmer. Slake the arrowroot in a little water and using a whisk mix little by little till a sauce consistency is obtained, but not too thick.
    6. Pass through a sieve and add in the zest and allow to cold.
    7. Turn the terrine out of the mould and remove the clingfilm. Slice the terrine into 2cm thick slices and place in the center of the plate with the sauce spooned around the edge.
    8. Garnish with the remaining small strawberries around the plates and serve.
