Ingredients For fruit terrine (red white & blue!)

  • 2 c
    white grape-peach juice (or juice of choice)
  • 1 1/2 tsp
    agar powder (or gelatin powder)
  • 2 Tbsp
    *optional, agave nectar or honey (use to sweeten, if your fruit is a bit tart)
  • 10 oz
    fresh strawberries
  • 2
    fresh bananas
  • 1 1/2 c
    fresh blueberries

How To Make fruit terrine (red white & blue!)

  • 1
    Put one cup of the juice in a saucepan, and sprinkle the agar over it; allow it to soften for a few minutes. Heat on medium-high, stirring, until the agar is completely dissolved and the juice begins to boil.
  • 2
    Stir in the remaining juice and the agave (*optional) and remove from heat. Allow the agar mixture to cool slightly while you prepare the fruit. Be sure to stir the juice every minute or so.
  • 3
    Remove the stems from the strawberries and slice them lengthwise. Place them on the bottom of a loaf pan, prettiest sides down. Slice the bananas and place them on top of the strawberries. Put the blueberries in an even layer on top of the bananas.
  • 4
    Gently pour the juice mixture evenly over the berries. Working quickly, distribute the mixture evenly in pan.
  • 5
    Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until completely chilled and jelled.
  • 6
    To serve: Carefully run a knife along the edge of the mold (you may want to lower the pan into a large bowl or sink full of hot tap water for a few seconds to free the mold) Invert over a platter
