½ packet agar or pectin

2 cups of grape juice or diluted Ribena

¼ cup sugar


1) In a pot, add agar into 1 cup of grape juice and with low heat, slowly bring the agar juice to boil.

2) Add sugar, and turn off the heat.

3) Add the second cup of grape juice, stir well, until the sugar completely dissolved.

4) Pour the agar mixture into a container with flat bottom to make a layer of jelly about 2 cm (1 inch) height.

5) Keep the agar mixture cool in the refrigerator.

6) When it is set, use a small scoop to make balls of jelly, that looks like real grapes.

7) Arrange the jelly grapes in a cluster of grapes.

8) Decorate with green leaves at one side of the jelly grapes.

Note : Pectin can be used to replace agar in this recipe. However, jelly or gelatine is not suitable since it is too sticky to scoop into ball shape.

      Wow this looks magnificent. The jelly in the pic does look like grapes; I didn’t know it’s not grapes until I read the hub! Excellent and a very creative way of serving a desert!
