Applesauce jello

I saw the blog post on Primally Inspired for a jello recipe and was super happy! A nice treat with a bit of protein and amino acids, yet not heavy on honey. I made it once with true cranberry juice (no sugar added = super tart), per the recipe (i.e. two cups of fruit juice, two tablespoons gelatin, one tablespoon honey), plus added a few cherries, and it was delicious!

However, I don't want to add honey to my foods, certainly not on a regular basis. So I decided to try the jello recipe with applesauce as the liquid, sans honey.

2 C applesauce, hot out of the crock pot, or out of a jar and warmed
2 tbsp beef gelatin
3-4 tbsp cold water

  1. Set out an 8x8 baking dish
  2. Mix gelatin in with the cold water, and mix with a fork until combined (it will be really thick)
  3. Scoop the hot applesauce into a mixing bowl and quickly add the gelatin/water mixture, mixing fervently to ensure that it dissolves evenly throughout
  4. Place in fridge for a few hours until it sets up
  5. Cut, serve and enjoy! It's delicious!
The texture is very homogenous - it's like a semi-solid bar of applesauce. I really love it!!
This is what it looks for going in to the fridge, and coming out when solid!
