Magic Cordial and Magic Jelly

These are our favorite treats at the moment

Magic Cordial

1 cup of Castor Sugar
1 tsp Citric Acid

Mix together in an air tight container and shake really well. Then pop a tsp (or to taste) in a glass of water and stir until dissolved.
Instant lemon coridal without preservative or colours = a happy house - the kids think its fantastic - maybe I deprive them - LOL

Magic Jelly

1 cup of Castor Sugar
1 tsp of Citric Acid
1 cup of Warm water

mix together until dissolved, add 600ml of cold water

Dissolve 6-8 tsp of gelatine in 1 cup of boiling water, then add to the sugar/water/citric acid mix and pop in the fridge, we usually pop some colour in now though. The pink or yellow natural food colours are great, the blue and green are a little muddy :(

It takes about 6 hours to really set properly. This makes just over a litre of jelly but it never lasts long here - LOL

Hope you are having a great week
