I have an over abundance of carrots. I was looking to see if I could find a good carrot jelly recipe, and came across this recipe... it sounds scrumptious, and I would love to try it.... but can someone put it into my language for me please????? I'm not sure how to change the measurements, and I have no idea what leaves of gelatine and caster sugar is... help!!!!
And if someone has a recipe for carrot jelly, and/or carrot pie(?) I would greatly appreciate it....
Beetroot and Carrot Jelly with Pear and Lime Saut� :
750 mL of beetroot and carrot juice*
3 leaves of gelatine
2 teaspoons of honey
2 pears, cut into small chunks
1 tablespoon of butter
1 tablespoon of caster sugar
Juice of one lime.
Soak the gelatine leaves in cold water for 5 minutes. Heat 100mL of the juice until almost boiling and stir in the honey. Squeeze the water from the soaked gelatine and whisk into the hot juice. Add a bit of the cold juice to the hot liquid then mix the hot into the cold. Pour into a mould to set. It will take at least three hours to set in the fridge.
Melt the butter in a heavy frying pan and saut� until the pear begins to colour. Stir in the sugar and the lime juice. Remove from the pan to cool.
Serve the jelly with the pear saut�.
