Raspberry Jelly

by | Aug 19, 2016 | 5 comments

Store bought jelly can have some pretty nasty ingredients in them. It's so easy to make jelly at home yourself and you may be surprised to learn just how many health benefits it has. Jelly (or the gelatin found in jelly) contains natural amino acids and collagen, which is good for the skin, hair, teeth and nail health. It's also great for joints and joint recovery, can aid in digestion, boost moods, aids in the livers natural detoxification and reduces wrinkles and cellulite!!!

    So yum and so easy to make, my kids 5 and 2 years old actually did most of it. I usually make jelly in my thermomix but this method was way easier and much faster. Increased to 2 tbs honey for taste for us. Love it Cyndi, thanks so much. Will try the apple and Passionfruit next

    Are you able to use agar agar?

      Hi Sue,
      We haven’t actually tried it with Agar Agar, only our gelatin.

    Is this meant to be 2 cups of filtered water or coconut water or 1/2 cup filtered water or coconut water – in the method section it says to add 1/2 cup of water or coconut water to the gelatin, but at step 3 it says to add the rest of the ingredients – does this include another 1 and 1/2 cups of water or coconut water together with the raspberries, honey and lemon juice? Thank you.

      Hi Marie,
      You add 1/2 cup of the filtered water or coconut water to the gelatin and set is aside to thicken. Then add the hot water. Once it has dissolved, add the rest of the filtered water or coconut water (the other 1 and 1/2 cups). Hope this helps 🙂
