I eat 'straight' gelatine - no colour or sugar - you can find it in the baking section, usually.

I make fishy jellies - bran, flaked salmon or tuna, and prawns, pour over the gelatine and let it set. Great with salad, or fresh veges. Don't make the gelatine too strong, experiment and leave overnight - it sets slowly, even in the fridge. You don't have to put the bran in, unless you need it.

The sachets are usually to make a pint I only use 1/3rd of the powder as it is only for me.

Great summer lunch. Also great for the nails. If I stop after eating it regularly (as I did when the local supermarket stopped stocking it) I could see a reduction in nail thickness after a week or so.
