Method

  1. Tip the strawberries and 50ml (2fl oz) water into a saucepan. Cook over a gentle heat for 3–5 minutes, until the berries begin to burst, skimming away any froth that rises to the surface. Then whiz in a food processor until a smooth sauce forms. Stir through the honey and a squeeze of lemon juice, to taste. Pass through a thin sieve, discarding the seeds, then measure out 300ml (1/2 pint) of the strawberry juice.
  2. Meanwhile place the gelatine in a bowl and pour over 5 tbsp cold water. Leave until the liquid has been absorbed. Place the bowl over a pan of boiling water. Remove from the heat and leave for 5 minutes until the gelatine has dissolved. Then stir into the strawberry juice and mix well. Pour into a lightly oiled 20x20cm (8x8in) baking tin. Place in the fridge for 3 hours or overnight until solid. Turn out onto a board, then use a small cookie cutter to stamp out shapes or cut into small squares.

Tip: For something different, use orange, mango or cranberry juice.
