Here are a few of my gelatin variations, in case they are of use to someone:

I use a two-cup jar, and fill it about 1/3 with filtered, room temperature water.

Add 1 rounded Tablespoon of NOW brand powdered beef gelatin. Stir well, and let gelatin granules swell up.

Fill jar with one of the following:

hot tea

hot vinegar with a good "dose" of sea salt

hot water, and after it cools some, but before it thickens, add stevia.

Those are my current favorites.


I've also tried baking extracts: lemon, orange, and mint. But I found I prefer the flavors I listed above.


I spoon approx. 3 ounces of the cooled gelatin into a custard cup and mix in ca. 1 1/2 T. homemade yoghurt. (I use the Organic Valley, pastured hh.) I tried sour cream, but found that I prefer my own yoghurt.

Hope this helps someone.

Best wishes to all for a very blessed Christmas, and a healthy, happy New Year.

I tried a new-to-me brand of cream cheese, a whipped one, TempTee, by Breakstone. It is nice for a base to mix in things, such as: black olives, green salad olives with pimientos, or for dessert with an egg, stevia, and vanilla, etc. I like the flavor and texture of this cream cheese better than others I've tried.

Merry Christmas to you Auntie Em!

I love cream cheese. It is on my list to try making it! That is right before I give up dairy..... Too see if it can help me boost weight loss.

Hi, Cathy. Yes, the cream cheese can be on the too-much-of-a-good-thing list. If I keep my protein and carbs low, I can indulge in cream cheese a bit.
