Homemade Jelly (Jello)


I’ve had to find some creative ways lately to get Vitamin C powder into my little ones.  More on that another time. 🙂

But here’s one sneaky way where I made some jelly, waited until it cooled, and then added the powder in before it set.

Of course, jelly is a fun treat even when there’s no medicinal intent. 🙂 I think we’ll be making these for parties this year.


1 metric Tablespoon of gelatine
100ml (1/2 cup) boiling water
400ml fruit juice


Dissolve gelatine in boiling water.  Then simply add fruit juice, either freshly squeezed with pulp out, or the best quality fruit juice (preferably organic) you can get.  Set in fridge.

I did a double batch and served in Turkish tea glasses and also made some mini jellies in moulds.  You might like to serve with fresh fruit such as blueberries.
