    I add it to chili, stews and soups as well. They firm into "Jello" when cold in the fridge, then melt to normal consistency when heated. I just made a very large pot of chili and put in 2 packets of Knox gelatine. I always do this. Taste and texture are completely unaffected when warm or hot. No one will have any idea it's there.

        I cooked and mixed strawberries and rhubarb with Knox for today's flavor, Stevia to taste.

          4 packets of Knox, 3 cups of boiled organic grape juice, 1 cup of cold (room temp, actually) grape juice. I just follow the directions on the box. Tasty! I haven't had grape juice in ages.

          I wasn't sure what it would be like. It's firmer than jello (probably isn't going to melt at room temp either), softer than gummy snacks.

            Looks like the jello Jigglers we used to make when my 17 y/o was a toddler. Not hard like gummy candy but not as squishy as regular jello.

              I've always made rice pudding as a custard in the oven. My recipe uses eggs and milk. How do you substitute the gelatin or would you just add it without changing anything else? I'd love to make it with the gelatin.

                Yes, I heated it slightly, not enough to kill it, just warm to the touch so the gelatin dissolves. That way, all the good little buddies don't die.

                    I would just make it "soupier" than normal and add gelatin to compensate. I did 2 packets in my latest batch.

                      ... if you "do" dairy, don't forget Panna Cotta.

                      ... better still, Panna Cotta over Jelly (what we call Jello over here in't UK):


                      Living in the Ice Age: Eat More Gelatine!

                      Do try to get it before the cat, though ...



                      Recipes?

                      Jelly - Red grape juice (just juice, from grapes ... not concentrate or full of stabilisers, sweeteners and so on) and sufficient gelatine to set.
                      Panna Cotta - single cream, sufficient gelatine to set, splash of vanilla essence, touch of honey (if required).

                      I've taken to making up a pint of jelly, dividing into 6 glasses, four half full ready for topping with Panna Cotta and two simply topped up with frozen berries:


                      ... touch of double cream on top.

                      It certainly makes a fun change from oxtail and lamb shanks.

                      I do like red wine, so may well make up a half and half red grape juice and a good Burgundy. Maybe next time I buy a bottle. Also, blackberries are just about to come into season and the bushes all around look loaded! I guess we'll be sick of blackberry jelly in a month, or so ...

                          I'm not good at improvising in the kitchen but I tried this and it worked pretty well.

                          One tetra box of Arroy-D coconut milk

                          One sleeve Knox gelatin.

                          3 tbs unsweetened dark chocolate powder (used Ghiradelli)

                          2 dashes of cinnamon

                          slight drizzle of vanilla extract

                          tbs of molasses.

                          All into a blender, wirrrrrrrrrrrrrr, scoop into a Tupperware, into the fridge for a few hours.

                          Pretty decent chocolate pudding. Actually it's somewhere between pudding and ice cream in consistency. I might play around with sweetener -- might even go with -- gulp -- some sugar.

                            Just made Crio Bru jello. It was good with coconut cream on the top.
                            Started Primal June 2012 at 148.5lbs, and 5' 1", reached goal weight in 5 months.
                            Lowest weight 93lbs - too thin. Now stable at around 100lbs much better weight for me at my age.
                            Primal, minus eggs, dairy and a myriad of other allergens.

                              I have Crio Bru round here , I'll have to try that.

                              I had this one the other day:

                              Chocolate Panna Cotta

                              Ingredients:
                              3/4 cups whole milk
                              1 vanilla bean, slit lengthwise and seeds scraped
                              1/2 tsp salt (I added only a pinch)
                              2 tsps powdered unflavored gelatin (I used 1 1/2 tsps)
                              2 tbs water for the gelatin
                              4.5 oz dark chocolate
                              2.5 tbs cream

                              recipe from a blog called "Tasty Treats" It was supposed to make 4 small servings, but I ate half of it LOL

                                I made apple juice gelatin and it was not nearly as delicious as the grape. Maybe I'll try apple cider once it's in season.
