You can make jelly 'sweets' which taste like thick jelly and hold their shape like gummy sweets.

You get the jelly powder and make it up to 1/2 pint water, then add 3 tbsp of gelatin powder (or two leafs) and mix. Pour into trays (I used a Tupperware dish) and cool. Put in fridge to set. I cut mine into snakes, put them in a pot and take them to the cinema. Makes me feel like I have sweeties too! 2 syns for the whole lot!

Am trying this now - poured Blackcurrant flavoured jelly / gelatine mix into ice cube tray and heart shaped ice tray - fingers crossed - usually I can detect gelatine a mile off - fingers crossed the Blackcurrant masks it a bit for me....... thanks for the recipe x

Hi All

I am trying this tonight to control my sweet tooth over the three day weekend - wish me luck.

Also, how long do they stay fresh for? I was thinking of trying to make a batch of various flavours all together.

Thanks

Thanks for this- sounds worth a try :)

How come it is 2 syns for the whole amount? If the sugar free jelly is 1.5syns when made to 1pt wouldn't be the same with less water? Isn't gelatine free?? :confused:

I cant remember where i got this recipe from and it was 2syns. maybe they have changed syn values since then?

Ah, cool. Maybe there are some of the sugar free jellies which are 2 syns? I reckon if it's 1.5syns made up 'normally', it can't be any different with added gelatine :)
