Natural jello - gelatin dessert
This simple gelatin dessert has only natural ingredients. It´s very colorful and tastes fruity. I´s a good choice for those with a food allergy, like me. And it´s a hit with children of all ages.
Ingredients (makes 4 cups)
3 cups fruit juice of your choice (grape, orange, peach)
2 envelopes granulated gelatin (1/4 ounce) - unflavored and colorless
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup sugar mixed with 1/2 cup water
In a small bowl sprinkle gelatin over 1/2 cup water. Let it rest for 3 minutes. Microwave bowl for 15 seconds on high. Mix and let it cool for 3 minutes.
Place sugar and water mix in a small sauce pan and heat it until sugar is dissolved.
Mix well gelatin with juice and sugar syrup.
Transfer fruit jello to a serving bowl and refrigerate until set.
Avoid pineapple juice. It´s enzymes dont´let it set properly.
Sugar is optional, adjust it to taste.
This jello can be made with artificial sweeteners or honey. To use sweetner just mix it with water, don´t heat it.
