Enough of the chocolates, cookies, and cakes? Switch things up with a refreshing serve of strawberry jellies, topped off with ‘snowballs’ of vanilla ice-cream. Watch everyone’s eyes light up as you introduce this after a filling and hearty dinner, together with pink peppercorns to adorn.
TIP If you have the time, the strawberries in step 1 can be kept at a warm room temperature for 2 hrs, instead of heating. Strawberries remaining in the sieve can be added to smoothies or drinks or pureed to add to fruit sauces.
TIP Jellies can be made a day ahead. Snow balls can be prepared up to 4 hrs in advance. The strawberries for the macerated strawberries can be sliced 4 hrs ahead; add sugar and juice 10 mins before serving.
