Are Summer Berry Terrines freezable


I have offered to help my friend with desserts for 115 people for her special birthday celebrations but commitments before the day mean I need to plan ahead & utilise my freezer as much as possible. I have heard that jelly freezes well - will Delia's summer berry terrine freeze well?

Summer Berry Terrine

Hello Sandie H,

I think that you may have missed my post to you on the 23rd. I do not think the terrine will freeze. I have copied my last answer below just in case you find it helpful.



Copied from 23th April………..

In my experience jelly does not freeze successfully.

I agree about the Truffle Torte and also the desserts, or types of desserts that I have made ahead or frozen successfully are as follows…..

Fallen Chocolate Soufflé

Pavlovas can be made a week ahead and quickly assembled on the day. The vanilla mascarpone cream and the fruit coulis (can be frozen) can be made a few days ahead and if you do raspberries instead of strawberries there will less prep on the day.
Or the little meringues can be made ahead well in advance and frozen then assembled on the day.

Or even easier you could quickly assemble Eton Mess on the day.

Summer Fruit Compote can be made a few days ahead and served on he day with vanilla mascarpone cream and a biscuit, something like a hazelnut shortbread works well.

I think that Lancaster Lemon Tart will freeze really well.

Chocolate brownies are always popular and can freeze really well. They an be made more into a dessert by serving them with whipped vanilla cream and some chocolate sauce.

In the new book the Apricot Hazelnut Meringue Cake keeps well and the apricot filling can be made ahead and frozen.

Blueberry Muffin Cake freezes really well and could be served with a compote of blueberries and some whipped vanilla or cinnamon cream.

One Crust Pie can be made completely and frozen. We do this to make use of the fruit when they are at their best.

I hope that is all helpful,

Good luck,
