Clean Jelly for everyone

August 19, 2017

Rugby Union, Allblacks v's Wallabies, a spontaneous gathering of 2 families over at our place. Three very young children from 17 months to 4 years & four older children 10 - 14 years. 

Saturdays are busy for me, actually which day isn't? I set my intentions to make jellies for all the children. Seeing the wide smiling faces in anticipation & watching them devour is so satisfying. I love that parents trust that there are no nasties, puts the parents mind at ease, especially those who are gluten free, egg free or sensitives to artificial colours & flavours. 

The start of summer fruit was my inspiration. I had two punnets of strawberries, 1 punnet of blueberries & had picked mulberries off our tree. I chose Raspberry Jam Cordial as it pairs perfectly with fresh berries. 

Best gelatine, readily available, that does not contain any sulphur (220) is Dr Oetker, it is a product of Hungary. See notes below if your using Dr Oetker. I did use this before I swapped to Nutra Organics Gelatine. Sistermixin sell it online.

For the three lil ones, I used eco friendly plastic cups. The tweens glass cups ( see main picture) I added a tiny spoon of thick cream for the tweens.

Jellies are so fun to make any time of year. Perfect to take to BBQ's, parties & for children parties.
