Strawberry Jellies
Method
  • Heat the strawberries, 40 g sugar and 650 ml water in a pot over medium to high heat.
  • When the mixture starts to simmer, turn off heat and immediately cover with plastic wrap. Set aside for 1 hour to cool and allow all of the aromas and colors to be released into the mixture.
  • Pass mixture through a strainer into a deep pot. It should be about 850 ml.
  • Add the glucose, vanilla seeds (from the pod) and remaining sugar. Cook for about 15-20 minutes over medium heat until mixture reaches 116* C (240* F).  
  • In the meantime, soak the gelatin in a bowl with cold water for 3-5 minutes, until it softens.
  •  
  • Squeeze to release extra water and add them to the mixture and stir until they dissolve completely.
  • Pour mixture into a 22 cm square baking pan, lined with plastic wrap.
  • Refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight until it becomes more firm.
