I can claim no credit for this; I picked it up on delicious:days, one of the best foodie weblogs I know. I followed the recipe exactly, so there is no need to reproduce it here. I made the jelly firmer than I normally would, so it would cube nicely and hold together for the photos. It makes a cute after-dinner “drink”; I’d serve it with either a blob of sweetened whipped cream or a small scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Nicky of delicious:days is also an ace photographer. In another bloggy initiative, I have signed up for a “food photography 101” course being run jointly by Nika of Nika’s Culinaria and Curt of Bucky’s Barbecue and Bread, in the hope that I can actually start posting photos on this blog.
I’ve done the first lesson, and the photo above is the result of actually experimenting with a few of the non-automatic settings on my camera instead of just hopefully pointing and shooting. OK, so it’s not up to Nika or Nicky standard yet, but it’s a big improvement!
I set up a Flickr account for the purpose of the course, so you can view my pathetic attempts there.
