So yesterday I made some jelly with a sachet of gelatine, water and CD water flavouring, it has set overnight and I've just tasted it- yum!!!

One question though - is it ok on SS / SS+? Does the gelatine not add any calories?

I was very impressed with it and so was OH and DS - OH even said that he prefered it to the Rowntrees one I made the other day. Surely something this nice can't allowed? :D

You're limited to how much flavouring you can have in a day aren't you? What quantities do you use of everything?

i use 300ml of boiling water to dissolve the gelatine then make it up to 500 ml with cold water, add about 1/2 teaspoon of flavouring.i then put that in to 2 dishes so have it 2 days on the trot

I used a pint of water (as per gelatine sachet instructions), 1 sachet of gelatine and 2 teaspoons of water flavouring - thinking I'd eat it over 2 days so 1 teaspoon/day but it is a bit too sweet so I'll make it with 1 teaspoon of water flavouring going ahead - It's lovely but I have to say it tastes like lemon not like orange which is strange because it is orange flavouring

Oo - that'd be even better - it's super cheap too - I got the gelatine sachets from Morrisons - 69p for 6 individual Dr Oetker sachets

Ooh haven't tried this yet.

I find it tastes more like lemon than orange too, like old fashioned lemonade.

Feels and tastes like creamola foam on the tongue.... i know i shouldn't dip my finger in the tub and lick but it was nice lol

yes but i prefer the gelatine as with the mix a mousse you get a froth on top, its nice tho
I found that if you put cling film over the top of the pot as soon as u have poured it in u dont get froth ontop!
