  • Wash and hull the strawberries and add to a large bowl. Reserve 4 strawberries for garnish.
  • Pour the chardonnay into a glass measuring cup or a small bowl and microwave for 1 minute. Then pour the wine over the strawberries.
  • Pour the sugar over the berries and wine and mix together well.
  • Using a potato masher, mash the strawberries to break them down into small pieces to release the juices. You can also use two knives and cut through the strawberries in a criss-cross fashion.
  • Let sit for 1 hour to infuse the wine with the berries.
  • Strain the berries in a fine sieve over a large measuring cup and using a spoon or a soup ladle press out the juices.  Add water to make 2 cups of liquid.
  • In a small bowl, mix the lemon juice and gelatin together.  Microwave on high about 20 seconds or until the gelatin has dissolved.  Do not boil this mixture. Stir the mixture together.
  • Stir the gelatin mixture into the strawberry/wine juice.
  • Set the gelee in the freezer in the measuring cup and stir every 5 minutes for 30 minutes.  The gelee will firm up but it will not be completely set.
  • Spoon the gelee into 4 6-ounce ramekins, wine glasses, or bowls, then set in the refrigerator. The gelees will continue to firm up.

Serving the gelee

  • Pour the whipping cream into a small bowl and using a hand mixer whip until the cream is firm.
  • Pipe rosettes of the whipped cream on top of the gelee, or spoon a dollop on top. Top the whipped cream with a sliced strawberry and serve.


When serving the gelee they should loosely set and a bit jiggly. They do not firm up like jello.
