Recipe For Summer Berry Terrine

Since getting my terrine for my birthday I’ve not done much in the way of making terrines. I’ve baked bread in it and made a cake but I kind of stopped there. As I had an opened bottle of cider to use up I decided to make a berry terrine. We have a really lovely selection of summer berries available to us and I chose just three for this dessert. There is no need to limit yourself to my choice, use what you can get. I know that overseas you have a far wider variety than we do so let your imagination run wild. If you use frozen berries be sure to defrost them on paper towels before using them in the recipe.

  3. That is a really cool dessert. Do you think I could exchange the gelatin for sugar free jello? Hey did I miss your birthday, when was it? Happy belated…

    1. My birthday is in July so you did not miss it 🙂 For sure you can use sugar free jello. It will work perfectly 🙂

  4. I made the mistake in putting kiwi in my first terrine and didn’t understand why it never set. I’ll have to try again because yours looks delicious!

    1. Kiwi is not a good fruit to do much with as it breaks down the enzymes in so many things 🙂

  8. Very impressive this dessert, Tandy! my favourite barries are strawberries and blackberries…but we need to wait a few months before finding the fresh (it was SNOWING yesterday here in the UK!)

    1. I saw you have had snow and today it is going to be really cold in London, but at least you have summer and lovely English berries to look forward to 🙂

  9. That looks wonderful Tandy. Such a lovely light dessert. I think I might be tempted to swap the cider for champagne too 🙂

  13. I’m a sucker for anything with berries Tandy and I love this recipe. Gelatine is tricky to work with as too much or too little can have horrible consequences. If I use powder gelatine instead, how much would I need to use in place of the 5 leaves?

    1. Hi, for gelatine 10g (15mls) powdered = 5 sheets. For every 100mls of liquid you need 1 leaf of gelatine. I hope this helps. If you ever get stuck see my conversion page http://tandysinclair.com/helpful-hints/ which contains all sorts of helpful hints 🙂
