Pink & White

Jelly.....
What does come to your mind when you hear the word JELLY !!!
I can picturise wobbling jelly in spoons of kids in Jurassic Park, when the dinosaurs are coming... I love Jelly and so does Neil...

Every now and then a kid deserves treats.. Treats are usually considered unhealthy. But what if we made these treats which are not only healthy and tasty but easy to make. So the Jelly recipe here includes milk and natural cranberry juice..
The sweet and sour taste of cranberry is perfect compliment to dense sweet milk jelly. It tastes great, but its also looks very good.
Its a recipe which will be hit among kids as well as adults.. these jelly cubes can easily be served as a dessert in your kids birthday party..

For pink jelly
Ingredients:
  • 1 cup cranberry juice
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tbsp gelatin

Method:
  • Pour water in a small saucepan, and sprinkle with the gelatin.
  • Allow to soak for a minute or two.
  • Heat over low heat until gelatin is dissolved, about 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the cranberry juice.
  • Pour the jelly mixture in a square/rectangle shaped mould. I used bread loaf pan.
  • Place the jelly in the fridge for 1-2 hours till it sets.
  • Once the jelly sets, I used different shaped cookie cutters to cut the jelly in various shapes. The leftover jelly was used in ring mould.
  • In a loaf pan or any other square/ rectangle shaped pan, arrange these jelly pieces and transfer the mould back in the fridge.
  • Now its time to make milk layer

Milk layer
Ingredients:
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tbsp gelatin
  • 1/2 can sweetened condensed milk (400gm can) nestle/ amul
Method:
  • Pour water in a small saucepan, and sprinkle with the gelatin.
  • Allow to soak for a minute or two.
  • Heat over low heat until gelatin is dissolved, about 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the sweetened condensed milk.
  • Let it cool and come to room temperature.
  • Now pour the milk mixture in the mould containing cranberry jelly pieces.
  • Let it set for 3-4 hours till firm.
  • Cut into squares and serve...
  • I had some leftover milk mixture. So I added some leftover cranberry jelly pieces in moist silicon jelly mould and poured remaining milk mixture into the mould..
