Wine Jelly Dessert (Auch Weingeleegenannt)

Weingelee 2

My first taste of wine jelly was amazing; almost heavenly. Wine jelly is made of gelatin, sugar and wine, the last of which is the ingredient that renders its taste so special and memorable. Apparently, this is a type of spread popular among those in the West – a spread served with either crackers and cheese or with berries and whipped cream.

I’m gonna skip the steps for making wine jelly in this blog and jump straight to its use in dessert-making.


  • Blackberries: 100g
  • Raspberries: 100g
  • Wine jelly: 100g (about 6 tbsp)
  • Whipped cream: 2 tbsp


  1. Place a mixture of blackberries and raspberries into a dessert glass.
  2. Scoop 3 tbsp wine jelly on top of berries.
  3. Leave to chill in fridge for 30 min.
  4. Serve chilled with 1 tbsp cream.



  • Making the wine jelly from scratch would be pretty much similar to making normal jelly. Recipes for making it could be easily found online too.
  • Serve without the whipped cream to have a fruitier tasting jelly (as shown in photo on the left).
