Method

  1. Divide the jelly into cubes and place in a large measuring jug. Pour in 150ml (¼ pint) boiling water and stir until the jelly dissolves. Cool until it almost starts to thicken, then whisk in the cream and milk and ½tsp of the vanilla extract. Pour into a serving bowl or jelly mould. Chill for 3-4 hours until set.
  2. Remove stalks from the strawberries and chop fruit. Put in a bowl with the sugar, the remaining ½tsp of vanilla extract and 2tsp water. Stir and leave for 30 mins for a syrup to form.
  3. Dip jelly mould briefly in hot water and turn jelly out on to a plate. Serve with the marinated strawberries and roughly crushed biscuits.
