Lime Jelly

I shall never buy flavoured jelly crystals again.

Maybe it was the saltiness of the pork marinade, but I found myself craving a cool sweet dish this evening.  I rarely have dessert, but I keep cans of fruit in the refrigerator against such need.    This evening I really felt like jelly.  I have gelatin in the pantry of course, so I decided to make a fruit jelly.  and then I hit on something really cool.

Lime cordial.  Makes great jelly. Not too sweet.

In a measuring jug add;

1 heaped tablespoon gelatin whisked in 100mls boiling water

1 can fruit salad or tinned fruit of your choice along with juice.

120mls Schweppes lime cordial

water to make up to 700mls.

mix and chill


Note:  one tablespoon gelatin  in 100 ml boiling water is sufficient to set 400ml of liquid to make 500ml jelly.





About Uisce úr

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.

    I made COFFEE Jelly too. From a very strong brew. Then I served it with cream and icecream as iced coffee jelly. I was the only one to try it. I thought it was good.

    Lime cordial jelly by itself is really good. My next batch will be lemon lime and bitters jelly.
