“From Cooking Light. Dec 2012. Uses applesauce and fruit puree. I made one batch with elderberry syrup and a 2nd batch with mango butter. Soaks up the sugar coating as it sits, so you might have to re-roll before serving.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Line a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with plastic wrap; coat plastic with cooking spray.
  2. Place 1 1/4 cups sugar, fruit concentrate or puree, applesauce, and corn syrup in a saucepan; bring to a boil.
  3. Cook until a thermometer registers 224° (about 10 minutes).
  4. Add pectin; bring to a boil. Cook 1 minute, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Stir in lemon juice.
  5. Pour mixture into prepared pan; cool. Cover; let stand at room temperature overnight.
  6. Sprinkle top evenly with 1 tablespoon sugar. Invert gelée onto a cutting board. Discard plastic.
