CHEF'S TIPS

  • Make sure to not purchase the light pectin crystals, it might not set properly.
  • If you don't have a silicone mould, create your own by filling a baking sheet with corn starch and using your finger to create a mould for the jelly. Another suggestion is to use an 8x8" baking pan and once jellies are set cut into squares.
  • These jellies are not as chewy as gummies made with gelatin, but we love the flavour from the fruit purée.
  • Feel free to use any fruit purée of your choice.
