We all know by now (don’t we?!) that gelatin is a wonder-food, providing proteins like collagen and glycine to nourish the tissues in our body – everything from bones, cartilage and muscle to skin, hair and nails. Most importantly, it provides the building blocks to heal, seal and strengthen our gut!
For real apple pie flavor, start with a can of:
[1 can = 1 1/2 cups (thawed) Organic Apple Juice concentrate]
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup Great Lakes grassfed beef gelatin
Pour the thawed apple juice into a saucepan.
Whisk in cinnamon.
Sprinkle gelatin into juice and allow to “bloom” (just a fancy term for allowing it to moisten and absorb the juice) for about 5 minutes. Do not skip this step or it will clump!
Once all the gelatin is moistened, heat on medium-low and stir occasionally until all the gelatin is dissolved. Pour liquid into silicone molds or a glass baking dish and place in refrigerator for at least 3 hours until gelatin is very firm.
Pop out of the molds, into a container and keep refrigerated. Yummy!
