Nourishing Orange Jelly.....with no added sugar
A nourishing and delicous snack in our home is jelly.* Made with high quailty bovine gelatin** ( I buy here) and the juice of freshly squeezed organic oranges, we enjoy this with spoonfuls of full fat cream. You can make this with any fruit - sometimes I make it using the whole fruit and other times like this orange version I use only the juice - when in season, pureed rockmelon is lovely.
So here's the recipe.....its pretty simple, I managed to make it yesterday with Milly in my arms.
juice of organic oranges (disregard the pith) 2 cups (500mls)
bovine gelatin - dissolve 2 tablespoons in 1/4 cup of boiling water
Mix altogether making sure gelatin is dissolved in the boiling water before combining with orange juice. Pour into shallow bowls and place in fridge to set - it doesnt take very long at all - sometimes an hour or two. Enjoy with thick cream (raw if you can get it).
I'd love to know if you make some.
I have written out that meal planner I promised, however trying to decide whether to post it without recipes or wait until I write them up (or just post each recipe as I write it up).....comments welcome, I am very indecisive, not to mention extremely time poor!
I have this in the oven as we speak ready for tomorrow night....will let you all know how it goes.
*No not the crap you buy in the supermarkets (sorry if any of you buy it...no judgment intended!!)
