    It’s not very fashionable to admit, but I like Jell-O, tomato aspic, panna cotta, and marshmallows. That is, I like food made with gelatin. (I even once jelled gazpacho; it looked like rubies.) I bought the Jellymongers book by Bompas & Parr, the British duo who make what can only be called jelly art, and really want to make their black cherry and prosecco jelly come June. And homemade minted marshmallows are one of my favorite things in hot chocolate (follow the lovely recipe from Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream cookbook, and add mint extract).

    However, gelatin, as you must know, comes from boiled pig bones. It’s a terrific source of collagen if you want to improve your hair, skin and nails or if you have joint problems. But, again, pig bones. So, since I only buy organic meat these days, it’s been no more jellies for me, alas.

    UNTIL NOW! (Cue infomercial graphics.)

    The Canadians are no longer just your source for affordable prescription drugs, they now also offer us suffering Americans 100% organic gelatin. The Canadian company GoBIO! offers 100% organic gelatin in powder and sheets, and it doesn’t cost a fortune (about $2 for six gelatin sheets). They also sell marshmallows, which you might as well throw in your cart too.

    Limoncello Jell-O shot anyone?
