    Thanks to all those who have posted about jelly. Made a pint today, and ate 3 bowls of it :gimi:(coloured for authenticity!) with choc ice cream (aka tetra!!)

    It was totally fab, and will become a firm favourite and a total lifesaver.

    Not sure where I read it first, but thanks so much!!!!!:flowers::flowers::flowers:

    Supercook gelatine used to make jelly with the water flavours, I coloured mine but you dont have to! I added a frozen choc tetra for the real kiddy party feel!!!

    Enjoy!!

    using the supercook gelatine, do you have to heat it first though?? How long does it take from you making it to eating it? I can't wait hours ! :)

    lol , glad u liked the jelly sez.
    i have become a bit of a gelatine pusher on here.
    cant sing its praises high enough, i have it as jelly n ice cream and also as trifle (making the topping with a choc tetra mousse).
    ive recently accidentally invented a slushy too thanks to hubby freezing my jelly which i then blitzed in the blender the following day and ate with a spoon (and sucked some through a straw). it was yummy

    dancing, it does take a few hours to set and yes u have to use hot water to dissolve the powder, BUT u dont get that funny foam on top that u get using mix a mousse. with a little food colouring it makes a perfect jelly.
    i even use a variety of colours now, (red, orange, green, black and pink so far) to add a little variety in the look of it.
    ive also made a two tone jelly, made half a red jelly, then when it set i poured half an orange jelly on top.
    u use ur eyes a lot when eating so if it looks good thats a great start.

    yes jackie, i am on ss and i have a trifle made with jelly and a tetra mousse every night for my tea. :D.
    u have to be able to have the flavouring to flavour the jelly so would have to be at week 3 but then u can enjoy it every day from then onwards

    the water flavourings do contain carbs (albeit no much at all) which is why they cant be enjoyed until week 3.
    worth the wait though i must say.
    :D:):D

    unfortunately donna, if u are using the mix a mousse it will always have that funny foam on top.
    u can however get 'supercook gelatine' from tesco or asda . it comes in a box of 6 sachets for 59p (in tesco) so has the added benefit of being much cheaper and doesnt leave any funny foam on top of the jelly. it makes a perfect jelly every time.
    i also suggest adding a few drops of food colouring as it is much more appetising if it looks like a real jelly.
    i even have to fight my kids off my jelly now and have had to start making one for them too. :D
    hope that helps.
