2 cups juice (i use lakewood cranberry juice, but you can use any kind of clear juice you want).
2 tablespoons of great lakes gelatin
sugar to taste
a 3(or 4) cup pyrex container (a square or rectangular shaped one for the mold)
a 2 cup pyrex measuring cup (for blooming the gelatin and measuring).
i start off by mixing 1 cup of COLD juice with the 2 tablespoons of gelatin in the measuring cup.
keep mixing till all the gelatin has been mixed with the juice, don't leave any chunks.
then let sit for 5 mins. This will bloom the gelatin.
After the 5 mins, dump the cup of juice/gelatin into the square pyrex dish, and then clean your measuring cup, then pour
another cup of juice into your measuring cup. I then microwave this cup for 2 minutes (maybe another minute after i test it)
then take it out to measure the temperature. you want to try to get the liquid around 160F degrees. (should be pretty hot to the touch)
then i mix in the sugar to taste, then add the hot liquid to the cold, and mix it.
it should all be clear after you mix them together, and then i leave it sit on the counter for a few minutes,
then put it in the fridge. It takes a few hours to harden.
when i first tried to make this, i thought it was like other jello, where you mix it in with hot liquids.. which is a bad idea.. since you'll wind up with a wad of glue stuck onto your spoon.Read more ›
In terms of what I read regarding suggested consumption:
Everyone says it is great in smoothies...umm...not so much...I threw it in my protein shake and quite frankly, it made the consistency really gross! Protein shakes aren't that great to begin with - I thought this made an already mediocrely tasting drink, taste like there was snot mixed in...I choked it down and prayed I found a better recipe...
I read people sprinkle in eggs...tried that...gagged and almost threw up...DEFINITELY will not repeat...worse than the protein shake...if I didn't make them myself, I would have sworn some guy blew a load in my eggs...
Next, I read it mixed well into hot cereal (oatmeal)...well, it mixed..if I ate it fast, it probably ranked a *little* higher than the protein shake, but not much...
Went back online to see if I missed some brilliant idea in terms of consumption...someone said they put a teaspoon full in their mouth and slugged down a huge glass of water...I am pretty sure that was a practical joke to see who fell for it...yep, I was a schmuck and gave it a whirl...I ended up face first in the kitchen sink, desperately trying to loosen the congealed paste out of my mouth ...Read more ›
Enter Great Lakes gelatin. Made from grass-fed beef, albeit from New Zealand and Australia. Excellent.
Not only is jello super easy to make with this, it's healthy. It's easy to associate gelatin with junk food since that's where it gets used, but this is straight collagen. Organic unsweetened juice and this gelatin are all it takes to make the world's greatest knee repair tonic. And it's straight out of your childhood.
I wish there was a version that wasn't imported, but being someone who actually works with grass-fed beef farmers and butchers, I've tried to get this made regionally and it's not happening. This is not your worst back up plan.
I drink one tablespoon dissolved in hot water to make a tea, twice a day. The taste is somewhere between neutral and pleasantly rich but in an extremely subtle way. I really enjoy drinking it in my teas unsweetened, although my housemates think I'm a freak for doing it, not that me filling the freezer with animal bones and organs and bee pollen and fermenting random stuff on the counter doesn't make me a freak already.
I originally bought this as a way to get more protein after reading what I now know was a quite quackery-laden blog post. Gelatin is NOT a complete protein. It's pretty much just proline and glycine, and has no tryptophan. So don't order for this purpose. However, if you're ordering to help your joints, skin, hair, cellulite, nails, etc. I think that this is the best you can buy.
I've been using it to get rid of cellulite (since it runs in my family) and it's a lot easier than constantly boiling bones and less gross than drinking bone broth at 7 am in the middle of the summer. And after doing this for a few weeks, my booty/thighs are looking shaa-weet! It's pretty crazy actually; I love this stuff.
