  • First of all, put all the berries into a pan with the sugar and lemon juice, and around half a litre of water
  • Gently heat until the mixture begins to bubble, and the fruits have started breaking down. Stir the fruit to encourage it to disintegrate
  • Push the fruit mixture through a sieve using a wooden spoon to remove all pips and stalks, making sure to extract all of the juices
  • Soak the gelatine leaves according to the packet instructions, until they are soft
  • Return the juice to the heat and bring up to a gentle simmer
  • Squeeze out the gelatine leaves and then add to the juice mixture, stirring until completely dissolved
  • Pour into individual glasses or pots to serve it in, and chill overnight in the fridge before serving
