Using this easy-to-follow recipe, kids will be able to enjoy all the warming flavours of mulled wine - minus the alcohol, of course. Jellifying the wintry beverage will make it even more inviting.
 

Method
1.
Start by combining 3 orange segments, the water, berries, cinnamon and sugar in a pan
Tasty trivia
Ask the kids to have a feel of the cinnamon stick first – can they guess what type of plant it comes from? Cinnamon comes from inner tree bark, which is why it has a woody texture
2.
Bring to the boil and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to infuse for a minimum of 30 minutes and up to 1 hour. Strain and set aside
3.
At this point, your choice of fresh berries can be added and served warm as a child-friendly version of mulled wine
4.
To make a jelly, soften the 6 leaves of gelatine in water. Then, add to the hot berry liquid and whisk until the gelatine is completely dissolved

Back to school
This step is important – soaking gelatine in cold water before use will prevent it from becoming clumpy as you add it to the mulled 'wine' syrup
5.
Lay an orange segment on the bottom of each bowl or glass then divide the berry liquid between them. Leave to set in the fridge for 3-4 hours
Room for a little one
Get the little ones involved by having them place the orange segment in each bowl. As the jelly sets, have them test how wobbly it is by gently pressing a clean finger on it to see if it is 'bouncy'
6.
Once the jellies have set, remove from the fridge and, if desired, finely grate some ice over the top or add fresh berries and dust with icing sugar before serving

Hi Kikkerikruthi - you can use Agar agar instead of gelatine and there is also a vegetarian gelatine available from some health food stores or online.
