How To Make A Basic Gelatine Mixture: Knox Unflavored Gelatine

How to Make a Basic Gelatine Mixture

This simple procedure–combining unflavored gelatine with a liquid–is the basis of all gelatine dishes. (When recipe calls for 1 tablespoon gelatine use 1 envelope.)

  1. Soften the Knox Gelatine by sprinkling on 1/2 cup of the cold liquid called for in recipe.*
  2. Place over low heat and stir until gelatine is dissolved.
  3. Remove from heat. Add remaining liquid called for.
  4. Pour mixture into mold. Chill until firm (3 to 4 hours).


  1. Dip mold in warm water (not hot) to depth of gelatine.
  2. Loosen around edge with the tip of a paring knife.
  3. Place serving dish on top of mold and turn upside down. Shake, holding dish tightly to the mold. If gelatine does not unmold readily, repeat process.

*If the recipe calls for 1 tbsp. or more of sugar, it is not necessary to soften the gelatine in the liquid. Just mix the gelatine with the sugar and add the liquid.
