    I can't figure it out!

    I used the sugar free jelly crystals like I have before, and they all dissolved properly. Might it be the fruit I put in? (Kiwi, raspberries and mango).

    I'm very dissapointed. :cry:

    It'll be the kiwi. It has been known to stop jelly setting other than that maybe the jelly was out of date. I had this problem once as didn't realise I'd had the jelly for so long.

    It was fresh kiwi, and frozen raspberries and mango. Jelly was in date and def half hot and half cold... What a shame - I was looking forward to that.

    Am consoling myself with a Fab lolly now.

    "NOTE: Do not use fresh or frozen pineapple, kiwi, gingerroot, papya, figs, or guava. Gelatin will not set."

    Ah yes - the kiwi.
    On that site it says canned pineapple is okay (but then you'd need to syn that).

    It's the enzymes in certain fruit that stop gelatine from setting. I didn't know about kiwi and the others, but I did know about pineapple.
