You’ve had Jell-O® Jigglers or Knox Blox? Here’s your alternative. Not only are they fun to eat, taste great, and give you a little nibble of something sweet, but they’re full of antioxidants from the hibiscus, while cinnamon lowers blood sugar and ginger settles a queasy tummy and is traditionally used for colds. Plus they help you work more gelatin into your diet. Consider these if you’re recovering from a queasy tummy!

Instructions

  1. In a pitcher or big bowl, combine the hibiscus with the cinnamon sticks and the ginger root–slice the ginger root paper thin across the grain, first. Pour the boiling water over this combination, and let it sit for 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, sprinkle the gelatin powder over 1 cup cold water. Let that sit while the hibiscus steeps. In the meanwhile, grease or spray a 9” x 13” pan.
  3. When 15 minutes have passed, strain the hibiscus mixture, throwing the solids away. The liquid will be ruby-red, and should still be hot. First stir in the stevia, then stir in the gelatin that you’ve soaked in water, whisking until it’s all dissolved.
  4. Pour into the prepared pan and chill until set. When it’s set, use a thin, straight bladed knife to cut in squares. If you cut ‘em 1” square you’ll get 117 of them, but I cut them a little bigger.

Notes

The recipe contains a super-sweet blend of stevia and erythritol designed to not have that bitter taste some stevia powders have, to make this recipe, and it worked extremely well. It’s simply called Stevia (Reb A) and Erythritol by Natural Mate. I’ll be trying this sweetener in more applications.
