Lemon Gelatin

The lemon tree is packed with ripe, juicy fruit and I'm on a lemon streak!  This is really good - not sicky sweet like the store brands.  Using the raw turbinado cane sugar gives it a nice color.

Lemon Gelatin
3/4 cup organic sugar
2 envelopes gelatin
1 2/3 cups cold water
2/3 cup fresh lemon juice

Mix the sugar with the gelatin in a sauce pan.  Add the water and bring to a boil.  Remove from heat.  Add the lemon juice.  Pour into a bowl or mold and refrigerate until firm.

I also make gelatin from apple juice/cider:

Soften 1 package of gelatin in 1/4 cup water.  Add 1/2 cup boiling water and stir until dissolved.  Add 1 1/4 cup apple juice/cider and pour into a bowl or mold.  Refrigerate until firm.

You can also add spices or grated ginger with the juice.
