Guinness Jelly

Clare Chambers


This is a recipe of my own invention, so any feedback if you try it would be very much appreciated.

The final taste is smooth and peatie. You can serve it as a sweet or savoury and goes particularly well with plain or sweetened cream cheese.

I like to make mini tartlets, fill with the jelly and smooth sweetened cream cheese over the top. When you bite into them they look like little pints of Guinness.

This also goes well with pork, cold meats, brown bread and cheddar or other cheeses.
