How To Make Jelly From A Packet
Jelly is a dessert that almost everyone loves. It's sweet, timeless and goes with just about everything. Most people buy it at the store, but did you know you could make it from a packet? Here’s a simple guide to show you how.
Things you will need
To make jelly from a packet, you’ll need the following items:
- A jelly packet of your choice
- Cold water
- Boiling water
- A mixing bowl
- A whisk
- Mold or container
Step 1: Gather the ingredients
Gather all of the above-mentioned ingredients and make sure they're all at room temperature.
Step 2: Prepare the mold or container
Prepare the mold or container you’ll be using to set the jelly. You can use a bowl, a cup or any shape you want your jelly to take.
Step 3: Mix the packet contents with cold water
Empty the packet content into a mixing bowl and add some cold water to it. Stir gently until the mixture is even.
Step 4: Add boiling water to the mix
Add boiling water to the jelly mixture, then stir continuously for about two minutes. Stirring helps to dissolve any lumps and ensure it's even.
Step 5: Pour the jelly mix into the mold
Once the jelly mixture is smooth, pour it into the mold or container you prepared earlier. Leave some space at the top of the container to set the jelly.
Step 6: Leave it to set
Leave the jelly to set for a few hours. You can put it in the fridge to reduce the waiting time. When the jelly is ready, you can serve it with whipped cream or fruit toppings, depending on your preference.
By following these simple steps, you can create a delicious jelly from a packet. Remember to follow the mixing instructions correctly, and don't forget to add your favorite topping after it’s set.
