Serendipity and Very low syn cola bottle jelly sweets

#1
Just last Tuesday, I was told about the new flavours of No Added Sugar cordials from Tesco (Sherbet Lemon, Pear Drop and Cola Bottle flavours)....

Then Serendipity appeared in the guise of a thread for Jelly Sweets the SW way.....

And so tonight, Cola Bottle Flavour Jelly Sweets were born!!!.....

I know that N.A.S cordials are 'free' but as I was using them 'not as directed' I checked out the kcals to work out the syns... 6 kcal per 100ml..

I used about 150ml (so about 9/10 kcals worth = 1/2 syn)

This made 26 jelly sweets, ice-cube size all for 1/2 syn!!!

Method

In a jug add 1/4 pint of boiling water.
Add 2 gelatine sachets and stir until dissolved.
Top up to the 1/2 pint mark with Tesco N.A.S. Cola Bottle flavour cordial.
Pour into moulds/tray.
Chill for about 1 hour.
Enjoy!!

If you look on EBay, you can get food grade citric acid. It's what makes sour sweets sour... See where I'm going with this? Mix it with sweetener and sprinkle it over the 'sweets' just before you eat them.

I would do as said , it's making jelly sweets not jelly. So it's 2 gelatine. And it's 1/2 cordial not diluted for taste. That's how I read it x
