There are a few great things about this jelly, obviously there is the fact that it’s wibbly, wobbly and sweet just like the bright pink sugar/chemical ridden block of everyones youth, but alongside that there is the additional brilliance of using a high quality, grass fed gelatine which is just brilliant for all your joints and elastic tissues. Like with a slow cooked bone broth you are providing your body with all those building blocks it needs to grow and maintain these tissues and if you’re also scrapping the mainstream sugary offering at the same time then my goodness you’re doing pretty well aren’t you!
Thinking laterally, if you can get kids onto this version you’ll be doing their growing bodies no end of good. Not only by supporting their skeletons, muscles etc but also removing a massive source of nutrient sapping nastiness from their diet, I promise hand on heart they will not ask you for the old stuff! Plus they can get involved and use any fruit they want, I would even go so far as to suggest making an fruit based juice but sneaking in the odd carrot or other veggie for those extra vitamins and minerals. For adults the combinations are literally endless, I’m already planning a refreshing summer treat made with pear, spinach, cucumber and mint.
