Or at least the promise of a sugar rush. It's gluten freel though, you can't have everything. After all the trouble I had making jellies this was an absolute breeze. I lightly (very lightly) oiled the dish I put it in to set and also made sure I had a sugary plate ready to turn it out onto for cutting up. It behaved itself perfectly.
There are lots of recipes online for this and it only takes a few ingredients. I used rosewater for flavouring but lemon is nice as well. I'd been thinking about making some for a while and knew I'd bought rosewater before, but couldn't find it. After a bit of tidying I found I have three bottles, obviously stocktaking isn't my thing (Sarah may identify with this!) and I'll have to find some more uses for it.
One thing I'd like to know is- why is vegetarian gelatine more than twice the price of the usual? Doesn't seem right somehow.
I think this is another one of those makes that would be good as a little gift in a nice tin or thrifted bowl, wrapped in cellophane. It looks suitably difficult to make while, in fact, being quite straightforward. It also has quite a springlike appearance, which is ironic considering it's snowing outside and well below freezing.
