“These simple jelly candies can be made using almost any juice, as long as it has been strained (if necessary). Try making a few different varities to serve together. Also experiment with different shapes, and with rolling the jellies in sugar and leaving them plain. You can either use molded pans or a regular pan and cut the candies out. If you like your candies firmer add an additional tbsp of gelatin.”
