I’m in the process of doing a little gut-healing, so although my social media feed looks as colourful and as exciting as ever, you’ve probably noticed that certain ingredients are on high rotation, while some of my favourites, haven’t featured much lately.
If you haven’t, good, you weren’t meant to notice.
If you have, well then you’ve probably noticed, that gelatin and bone broth have been popping up daily!
Today’s recipe is a variation on my Gut Healing Berry Jellies recipe I featured a couple of weeks ago.
While they’re both ridiculously easy to make, this one is even simpler because it doesn’t require a blender i.e one less step! Woo hoo!
Aside from the gelatin (which is great for gut health), the chamomile and manuka honey in this recipe are also brilliant at soothing the digestive system and balancing gut bacteria. I just threw the raspberries in because they look real pretty!
Quick reminder: When I refer to gelatin in this recipe I’m talking about a high quality bovine gelatin like Great Lakes, not the stuff you buy in the baking aisle at the supermarket.
Chamomile, Manuka Honey & Raspberry Jellies
- 3 1/2 cups of boiling water
- 1 tablespoon manuka honey
- 1 1/2 tablespoon of dried chamomile leaves
- 2 tablespoons of gelatin (see note)
- 1/2 cup of frozen or fresh raspberries
1. Line a rectangular or square slice pan with plastic wrap. I like to spray it with a little oil first so that the plastic wrap sticks. Leave wrap hanging over edges of pan so you can easily remove once jelly is set.
2. Place boiling water and honey into a large jug. Stir until honey is dissolved. Add chamomile and brew for at least 5 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, place gelatin in a small bowl and cover with 1/2 cup of room temperature filtered water for 5 minutes.
4. Strain tea mixture into a large jug and discard chamomile leaves. Add soaked gelatin and stir until gelatin is completely dissolved.
5. Pour mixture into prepared pan. Place raspberries intermittently throughout jelly mixture. Place in refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight. I recommend overnight.
6. Once set, slice into squares.
