Aussie Flag Jelly

After my last post, I was still in Australia Day celebrations mode. I decided to release the energy with some more JELLY! I have seen stained glass Jelly recipes floating around, but I decided to put a twist on the design in the spirit of our National holiday. So, I got thinking. Why not use the colors from our Aussie Flag and make it wobbly.

I have also heard this recipe called ‘Broken Glass Jelly’.

For this, I made up red and blue jelly separately. Although, instead of adding 2 cups of water in total, only do half. That way the jelly is nice and firm for what we are using it for.

*   1 can sweetened condensed milk

*   2 Tablespoons of unflavored gelatin

*   2 x red Jelly packets

*   2 x Blue Jelly packets

First, make up the red and blue jelly separately. Remember – Only add ONE cup of water and not TWO like the packet states. You dont want a squishy flag now do you …

Let the jelly’s set in the fridge for two hours.

Next chop them up into cubes and place them all together in a new container.

In a seperate jar, add the 2 tablespoons of gelatin and add 1/2 cup cold water. Let this sit for 1 minute then stir. You should see a gluggy mess.

Now add 1 1/2 cups of boiling water and stir until its all disolved.

Time to add the yummy milky goodness we call sweetened condensed milk.  I think I need to warn you, this stuff tastes amazing so dont be tempted to dip any fingers in… There wont be any left for the jelly otherwise.

Okay now stir the milky gelatin and leave to cool on the bench for about three to four minutes.

… here is were you do a happy dance around the kitchen table to Australian tunes while waiting for it to cool.

Done dancing? Right, now we are ready to pour the whole mixture into the jelly cubes.

Put the whole container into the fridge and chill for three hours.

Once its all set. Turn out the container and slice and your done. Except the part where your everyone’s BFF (Best friend forever) for the next hour.

Enjoy. Now excuse me while I go hide this yumminess in a secret compartment at the back of my fridge before anyone discovers it….
