Jello with Umeshu and Lemon

Jello with Umeshu and Lemon

The lemon juice makes this so refreshing! It's more suited for an adult palate.

Ingredients: 2 or 3 small cups

Gelatin powder
5 g
150 ml
150 ml
2 tablespoons
Lemon juice
1/2 a lemon (a little more than 1 tablespoon)


1. Soak the gelatin in 2 tablespoons of water. Squeeze the lemon (it's better if you add a bit of the pulp as well).
2. Pour the water, umeshu and honey into a pot, and turn on the heat. When it comes to a boil, turn the heat down and simmer for 2 minutes to evaporate the alcohol.
3. Add gelatin and stir well, then add lemon juice. Pour into cups, and let cool in the fridge until set.

Story Behind this Recipe

I enjoy drinking warmed umeshu with lemon juice and honey, and I wondered if it might turn out well as a gelatin dessert, so I came up with this recipe.
