Waste or mistakes never happen in a farm kitchen.....only future animal or plant food.

Earl Grey Jello - It's not just for kids

I discovered this lovely, sophisticated snack quite by accident.  I made some hot tea with gelatin and then forgot to drink it. The cold room gelled it right up. Not one to want to waste food, I was prepared to tolerate eating it as is.  I was pleasantly surprised at its delicate balance of flavors.  The cream of tartar enhances the citrus tone of the bergamot.

Ingredients: (per serving)
1 TBS Cane Sugar
1 TBS Beef Gelatin
1/4 tsp Cream of Tartar
Pinch of Salt
1 cup freshly brewed Earl Grey Tea

Mix the dry ingredients together in a cup or serving dish and poor HOT tea over them to about halfway, stirring rapidly.  When powders are all dissolved, add the rest of the liquid and chill in the fridge for about an hour or so...or in a cold room like mine.

I like to make jello in small, lidded pyrex dishes for To-Go foods.  It freezes fine, so is an easy make ahead snack/meal as well.
