Quick-Setting Jelly Desserts
It appears, looking at my blog stats, that I get more traffic to the site when I post food ideas, than when I rant. Today, therefore, I must come up with some foodie inspiration for students and impecunious cooks everywhere. You'll have to give me a chance to think up something, but I'll be right back ... honest!
Meanwhile, you might like my quick-setting jelly dessert suggestions. The jelly will set much quicker if you do it this way:-
- Buy jelly sachets (optional - yoghourt or a can of fruit. NOT canned pineapple or kiwi-fruit)
- Dissolve jelly crystals in microwavable jug in MINIMUM boiling water (I microwave the boiling solution for half a minute to hurry it up).
- Now add icecubes, stirring as you go to help dissolve.
- After 6 icecubes, it begins to set, and dissolution slows down. At that point, make up to a pint with cold water or yogurt - you'll need to whisk it in - or canned fruit. (Hint, don't go on adding icecubes when they struggle to dissolve. And remember - a pint is the upper limit, including the melted icecubes!)
