Fresh lemon gelatin + a great lemonade poster boy

Fresh lemon gelatin / Gelatina de limão siciliano

I am completely biased when it comes to lemon/lime things – and you all know that – but these gelatins are so delicious I beg you to try them!
It’s like eating solid lemonade – and if I can’t convince you of how good lemonade can be Mr. Ford is perfect for the job. ;)

Fresh lemon gelatin
from Luscious Lemon Desserts

3 ¼ cups (780ml) water
1 cup (200g) caster (superfine) sugar
¼ cup finely grated lemon zest
3 tablespoons plain, unflavored gelatin
1 ¼ cups (300ml) fresh lemon juice

Have ready six 1-cup (240ml) capacity glasses or ramekins.
Combine 2 ½ cups (600ml) of the water, the sugar and the zest into a medium saucepan and bring to the boil over medium-high heat. Remove from the heat, cover and let stand for 15 minutes.
Pour the remaining ¾ cup (180ml) cup of the water into a small bowl and sprinkle the gelatin over the water. Let stand until softened. Place the bowl in larger bowl of hot water and stir until the gelatin has dissolved and the liquid is clear.
Add the gelatin mixture to the saucepan and stir until dissolved. Stir in the lemon juice.
Pour the mixture through a strainer into the glasses/ramekins and let cool to room temperature. Refrigerate, covered, for at least 3 hours or up to 5 days.

Serves 6
