Tired of fruit flavored Jell-O? Try this...
Gelatin ala DaVinci
2/3 cup water
2 envelopes unflavored gelatin (Knox)
1 cup DaVinci Gourmet Sugarfree Splenda sweetened syrup, any flavor
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
Combine in a shallow dish 2/3 cup water and gelatin. Stir to mix. Allow to sit for 5 minutes.
Combine in a large measuring cup or small bowl DaVinci Gourmet Sugarfree Splenda sweetened syrup (pick your flavor!) and 1 cup water. Microwave until almost boiling. Pour hot syrup mix into softening gelatine and stir well.
Place syrup/gelatine mixture in microwave and heat an additional 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from microwave and stir well, being careful to stir all the way to the bottom of the bowl. Repeat heating and stirring for 5 to 8 minutes (until ingredients are completely mixed.) Add lemon juice and stir again.
Allow to cool until it reaches room temperature. Refrigerate for 6 to 8 hours.
Finished gelatine will be less "clear" than commercial Jell-O Brand. Feel free to boost colors when using syrups that are not heavily colored, with plain liquid food coloring.
