How do you use gelatin in cooking?

  • Before it jells, you can combine with cool whip and place it in a pie pan. Chill it in the fridge for a while and you have a pie.
  • Gelatin can be used in many ways in cooking. In its purified form, it has no color or flavor, and so Gelatin can be flavored with any number of different additives and colored to any hue you desire. It is especially popular as a dessert item, served either by itself, or with fruit added, multiple flavors/colors combined, whipped into a froth, and many other, various ways. Gelatin is a very useful "suspension medium" when used in a decorative or displayed manner, such as the culinary artform of "garde manger"(pronounced- Gar mohn-zjay). Clear and semi-solid when chilled, Gelatin can be used to "freeze-frame" a scene for use as a centerpiece in a large buffet-style menagerie, like at a corporate dinner, or on a cruise ship. I once witnessed my Chef, Chef Wayne "Butch" Lankowski, a Master of Garde' Manger, creating a sea-scape where Shrimp pulled a carriage of crabshell down a pathway in a scene reminiscent of Cinderella, using various crustaceans and mollusks, squid and octopus, Herbs and other vegetation, all suspended in mid-motion in a large molded "loaf" of clarified gelatin. It was quite remarkable! In this respect, one is limited in using gelatin only by one's own imagination.

How do you bloom gelatin?

Blooming gelatin is just the process of soaking it in water before adding it to other ingredients - it helps the gelatin to dissolve evenly.

To bloom gelatin leaves, place as many as you require in a bowl of cold water and leave for 4-5 minutes. Then remove the gelatin and place into the warm liquid which requires the gelling agent.

To bloom gelatin powder, pour the gelatin onto the surface of a small cup of warm water. DO NOT STIR YET! Leave it for 5 minutes to soak and soften, then stir the liquid to combine the gelatin. (The purpose of not stirring immediately is because this can form lumps.)
