As I’ve mentioned in another question, I’m attempting to make a large block of gelatin. Unfortunately, my first few attempts come out a bit amber in hue, using just water, sugar, gelatin and clear flavoring.
After some research, I found a video on making clear gelatin in which they:
- used a different brand of gelatin
- bloomed the gelatin in less liquid than I had
- added citric acid
- heated it for quite some time
I suspect that they also used a lower gelatin to water ratio. (I need this quite stiff, as it’ll be an unsupported cube about 10 inches (25cm) on each side.)
In looking at their images, I think that there’s still a little hue to their solution, but I’m not sure which of the differences are most significant to the process. Does anyone know?
