Mixed Berry Puddings
Suitable for Home Freezing
- 12 large slices of wholemeal bread
- 125g of gooseberries topped and tailed (the top and bottom cut off)
- 150ml red grape juice
- 275g blackberries, hulled
- 400g red berries, hulled
- 175g redcurrants, stalks removed
- 30ml chopped fresh mint
- Sugar to taste
- Line six 150ml pudding basins, dariole moulds or ramekins with cling film.
- Remove crusts from bread and cut a circle of bread to fit the base of each mould, cut another circle about 1cm bigger and set aside. Cut the rest of the bread into strips and use to line the sides of the moulds.
- Place a saucepan on heat and add gooseberries and grape juice, cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Add remaining fruit and continue simmering for 7 minutes until redcurrants start to burst and the juice runs, add mint and sugar and stir.
- While the fruit is still warm, spoon into the moulds, pour on the fruit juice (from the pan), cover with the 1cm bread circle you set aside. Cover with a plate and press down with a heavy weight then place in the fridge overnight.
- Turn out the pudding onto a serving plate, pour on any remaining juice, decorate with a sprinkle of icing sugar and a sprig of mint.
