How to make gelatin glasses
To make the gelatine glasses, we will use the traditional preparation, but with a few changes to give it the necessary firmness.
- 85 g of gelatine with the flavour of your choice
- 40 g of neutral gelatine
- 1 cup of boiling water
- ½ cup of cold water
In a large bowl, place one cup of boiling water.
Add 85 grams of gelatin with the selected flavor and stir until it dissolves completely.
Then add 40 grams of neutral gelatine and stir again until no lumps remain.
Once you have all the mixture homogenized, you proceed to pour half a cup of cold water.
Remove all the gelatine again.
Once the preparation is finished, we will put together the structure to make the gelatin glasses.
Build your Jello glasses
For this you will need two ecological disposable cups. One 250 ml and one 150 ml.
These measures are estimated. The idea is that you have a large glass and a smaller one.
Grease the big glass with spray oil. Do the same procedure, but on the outside of the small glass.
With the help of a sheet of absorbent kitchen paper, distribute the oil well over the entire surface.
This step is important. The ease with which the gelatine can be removed from the mould at the end of the preparation depends on it.
Once the greasing process is complete, take the largest glass and pour in some of the gelatine mixture. Stop when you get to the middle.
Immediately, insert the smaller glass into the jelly glass.
Inside the small glass, add some running water. This will cause it to sink and stay in the gelatin mixture.
Add more gelatin in the large glass and water in the small glass, until the preparation reaches the desired height.
Now let’s fix the glass that’s inside the mixture.
To do this, we will use two strips of packing tape.
With your hand, sink the small glass and fix it to the large glass with a piece of plastic tape in the shape of a cross.
Repeat the same operation with as many glasses as possible.
When the gelatin mixture is finished, refrigerate the glasses for at least three hours.
When using the glasses, take them out of the refrigerator and – very patiently – remove first the small glass and then the large one.
Incredible as it may seem to you, in this glass you will be able to serve some juice to your guests and invite them to eat the refreshing glass when they finish their drink.
