How much gelatine for this recipe (Touchofsky's)

Recommended Posts

I was reading up on gelfood recipes

 

Being a bloke who has not cooked and don't know what gelatine is supposed to look like, I went into the local shops and found that it comes as powder or leaves

 

Here is the simplest gel recipe I found on kokos (simple in terms of easily available ingredients that I can source locally, eg koi clay is not locally available,and I don't know what smelts is/ are)

Recipe by Touchofsky

 

1 cup lightly cooked vegetables (I used a half cup frozen peas, then the
next half cup was a mixture of frozen spinach, frozen green beans, green
pepper, & parsley, but you can use other things such as asparagus, mustard
greens, broccoli, carrots, whatever you have on hand) If you use frozen
vegetables, you don't have to cook them, since they are already blanched.

1/2 can tuna or shrimp

- liquefy the veggies and the tuna or shrimp in a blender,

- dissolve 2 packets of unflavoured gelatin in half a cup of warm water,
microwave till clear, and stir into the veggie mix.

 

My question: How much would two packets of gelatin be in terms of powder or leaves

 

Could anyone who has experience with gelatine please be kind enough and let me know

 

Also if anyone has equally simple recipes, with gelatine poweer or leaves please let me know

 

(for reference the pack of 12 leaves weighs 20gm, so each leaf is 1.7gm)

 

Looking forward to your replies :)

One package (= 1 tablespoon) of powdered gelatin equals 4 sheets (leaves). One package of gelatin is enough to jell 2 cups of liquid.

I have a step by step with photos blog on making gel food that you might find interesting.

 

I don't put any fish or shellfish in because my fishy friends live in a pond and eat lots of larvae.

Thanks for the measurements mysterygirl

I will see how I go with the basic recipe

If it turns out well I maybe brave enough to try something more adventurous :)
