Delightfully Chilled Magic Tomato Jello

Delightfully Chilled Magic Tomato Jello

This can transfer any tomato into a sweet and refreshing jello as if you had used a fruit tomato. Even my tomato-hating daughter ate this while saying how delicious it was.

Ingredients: 2~3 servings

Tomato
1 (about 200g)
Water
~100 ml
Sugar
30 g
Salt
a pinch
Lemon juice
1 tablespoon
Gelatin
5 g
Water
20 ml

Steps

1. Peel the skin off of the tomatoes in hot water. I always freeze them, rinse in water, and then peel the skin, so id you follow my procedure, microwave afterwards.
2. Add gelatin to water and let soak for 10 minutes.
3. Add tomatoes from Step 1 and 100 ml of water to a pot, smash while cooking over medium heat, and skim the scum.
4. Strain the tomato liquid, and remove the seeds.
5. By straining, the sharp red color will turn closer to pink.
6. Pour Step 5 into a measuring cup, and add enough water so that the liquid measures 300 ml. This time, I added 80 ml of water (not listed).
7. Return Step 6 to the pot, add salt and sugar, turn off the heat after dissolving completely, add lemon juice and the gelatin from Step 2, and dissolve completely.
8. Pour into a mold, chill in the fridge, and it is done . Garnish with canned mikan oranges, syrup, and mint as desired.
9. I have doubled the amount of milk jello in the photo.
