Jelly Recipes!!

I was never a big jelly fan, but after my friend Raji suggested me to post this recipe, I tried making it today using 2 flavors, strawberry & lemon and decorated them with grapes, mint leaves and edible decors. It turned out so gorgeous, the look itself made me famished. Not only I liked it, my husband loved it too. Thanx to my friend for this idea. So here I’m sharing her recipe along with some other easy interesting recipes and images. This is kids favorite and y shouldn’t it be….it is a striking yummy dish! Birthday parties will be fun with this dish.

  • Liquid Color: (Orange) Few Drops (No need of Liquid Color, If You buy flavoured jelly powder
  • Water: 250ml
  • Moulds: Can Use Ice cream moulds, plastic cups, steel bowls or aluminium foiled Cups.
To decorate: You can do it with blueberries, raspberries, grapes, dry fruits, cherries, mint leaves and even colored sugar.

  • Boil 250ml Of water.
  • Remove from heat and add the Jelly powder.
  • Stir for 5 Mins. Add few drops of Orange Essence and Liquid coloring(Orange).
  • Stir well.
  • Pour into individual moulds and place in the fridge until set.

4 x 5ml tsp Dr. Oetker Gelatine
250ml (9fl.oz) water

75g (3oz) granulated sugar

To decorate: blueberries, raspberries & mint leaves .

  • Place the water and sugar in a saucepan over a low heat and stir until the sugar dissolves.
  • Sprinkle the Gelatine over the surface of the water one sachet at a time and stir in until dissolved.
  • Remove from the heat and add the orange juice.

For Grape Jelly: You will need:
  • 1 (6 oz.) can Welch's frozen grape juice concentrate
  • 2 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. water
  • 2 fluid oz. pectin
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice
  • Begin heating water.
  • Add sugar slowly while stirring.
  • When sugar is dissolved, add pectin and bring to a boil.

Some people prefer jelly in a fluid form, but it tastes better in a semi solid form. So allow it to set and your jelly is ready to eat.
