Greggs Jelly.

had a craving for a raspberry jelly today, made it, measured right amount of water. Just had some, and would have (if eyes were shut). not known what the flavour was. absolutly tasteless.
Anyone else found the flavours not like they used to be.?

I'm afraid I have never found their jelly very tasty.

Was brought up in the UK on Rowntrees jellies and they always seemed tasty. We even used to take the jellies with us when hiking as a snack, as they were the solid gelatine type, not the powdered stuff.

Make your own, it's very easy.
1 litre apple juice. 1 c frozen raspberries. 1 tbsp gelatine powder
Place 2 cups fruit juice in saucepan, add raspberries, bring to boil, remove from heat and whisk in gelatine to dissolve. Stir thru remaining apple juice. Pour thru a strainer to remove raspberry seeds, pour into moulds or. A bowl, chill 3-4 hrs to set.

Can use boysenberries, blackberries or strawberries. Passionfruit is nice too. I have recipes for Coconut and lime, lemon, lime, summer berry jelly using rose wine, jellies as well.

Or you can use store bought juices to your liking with 1 cup fruit juice, sprinkle over 2 tbsp gelatine, bring 3 cups juice to boil, then pour over gelatin/ juice mixture and stir till gelatine dissolved, set as usual.

Yeah, make your own, even put in whole berries as such. which wheelz gave a recipe re that last bit of their post.

Another example-

Whole Berry Gelatine

1 cup whole berries
½ cup cold water
2 tablespoons natural gelatine
¼ cup hot water (near boiling)
1 ½ cups unsweetened berry juice.

Arrange the cut fruit or berries on the bottom of an
20cm square heatproof glass pan or something similar in size.
In a medium bowl, pour in cold water.
Sprinkle the powdered gelatine evenly over the water
and soften for about 8 minutes.
Whisk in the hot water until the gelatine is dissolved and fully incorporated.
Quickly whisk in the juice.
Gently, so as not to disrupt the berries, pour the mixture over the fruit.
Cover the pan and chill for 3 hours or until the gelatine is fully set.

Cut into 9 squares.

P.S. Can use any fruits for this.

make the marshmallow shortcake using the Gregs jelly and the last few times it is a failure

Solution would be to add more flavour and less water, gelatine and flavour if certain ones are know as noted.

You can complain to Greggs and even note this MB too just to enforce your thoughts.

Oh, editing to note that our taste-buds changes too as one gets older and this may be Greggs reply.
