Foodie Friday Results – Homemade milk jelly

2013-09-10 18.18.20Well, this jelly was a bit of a hit and miss. Firstly, I have no idea how the lady made her jelly look like this but I quickly decided to set my jelly in my Lil Pouches and some bowls. Of course, I amended the recipe 😉

I blended a punnet of strawberries in the blender and added enough milk to make 500mls in total. This mix was slowly heated up on the stove top. I then added 6 pre-soaked gelatine leaves and a very generous tablespoon of honey. I then stirred and stirred until the gelatine was dissolved. When the mix was cooled I poured into my containers and refrigerated overnight. Very very easy!

Unfortunately I run into my second issue at taste-testing time. My bubs aren’t quite strong enough to suck jelly out of a pouch so after squishing it into their mouths for a few minutes, I just opened the pouch and then put it into a bowl. Thank God I didn’t give it to them for their day care snack! My final issue was that Little Miss didn’t like the consistency of the jelly. Very disappointing. I have tried jelly previously (different recipe) when she was less than 1yr old but I was hoping she was grown out of it by now. Nope. She’ll eat green mandarin skins but strawberry milk jelly is apparently the grossest thing in the world.

 I still love this recipe. It’s just not for right now 🙁
