Lemon Tumeric Jellies

Ingredients:

  • 250 ml water (1 cup)
  • 2 cm ginger root -peeled and roughly sliced
  • 1 cm turmeric root -peeled and roughly sliced
  • 1-4 tbsp raw honey *(depending upon the level of sweetness you like)
  • 250 ml coconut water (1 cup) or kombucha or water kefir
  • 1 large lemon -juice
  • 1 tsp Camu powder (optional)
  • 2-3 tbsp organic gelatin

 

Instructions:

  1. Place the water, ginger and turmeric root into a small pot and bring to the boil, reducing to a simmer for approx. 5 minutes.
  2. Take off the heat off, mix in the honey or rice malt syrup and stir to dissolve.
  3. Allow to cool for 5 minutes or so, remove the solids and stir in the coconut water, kombucha or water kefir, lemon and optional Camu powder. Taste to check that you are happy with the flavour (sour/sweet balance). I should be luke warm before adding your gelatin.
  4. Now sprinkle the gelatin over the liquid, allow it to sit and bloom (go wrinkly) for a few minutes. For a traditional jelly set use 2 tablespoons, for a firmer, more gummy-lolly-like consistency, add 3 tablespoons.
  5. If the gelatin doesn't completely dissolve, you can pop your pot back on the heat for only 1 minute (only heat to luke warm), stirring well.
  6. Pour into a lined slice tray or moulds, and set in the fridge.

 

Thermomix:

  4. Now add your gelatin, mix 1 minute, temp 37, speed 3-4 or until the gelatin is dissolved.
