Do You Cook With Gelatin?

Have You Ever Cooked With Gelatin?

The other day I was making panna cotta with my mom. Aside from boxed Jell-O, she's never cooked with gelatin before. When I told her to let the gelatin sit in water, she had a hard time not stirring it. It's a lesson I learned the first time I cooked with gelatin. You have to leave it alone in order for it to bloom. Are you familiar with the ingredient? What have you made with it?

Yes, I use it a lot, actually. I make my own flavored "jello" and you can make really cool savory gelatin dishes like aspic. As soon as I get the whisk attachment for my KitchenAid mixer, I plan on making my own marshmallows as well.

Yes, I recently used it to make blueberry gelatins! But I grew up making Chinese-style almond gelatin with the stuff, too.

I love jello poke cake!! Some Vietnamese desserts call for agar powder, the vegetarian gelatin, we use it a lot!

No, I'm a vegetarian and before then, I never used it for anything other than Jell-O gelatin dessert.
