Christmas Jelly

My sister reminded me recently of the watermelon jelly mum used to make when we were children.  As she is older than me I had to get her to explain.  It was a three layer jelly: red, white and green exactly like a watermelon.

And also perfect Christmas colours. Xmas Jelly

Use  clear containers: parfait glasses, water glasses, jam jars…
