Make Your Own Coffee Jelly For Dessert Toppings And Meat Marinades

The aroma and taste of a fresh cup of coffee doesn't have to be limited to your morning routine — it's remarkably easy to make coffee jelly that you can use as a topping for ice cream or a marinade to slather on meat before cooking. Making coffee jelly takes a while to set up, but once it's finished, the possibilities are endless.

The only ingredients you need to make coffee jelly are water, sugar, coffee (the recipe calls for instant) and fruit pectin. The pectin will act as your stabiliser to get the finished product to set up nicely and get the consistency you expect from a jar of jelly. The full recipe and the proportions are at the link below, but the actual preparation is really simple: just dissolve the coffee in water, cook up the sugar, more water and the pectin, and then slowly pour over your now dissolved coffee water. Stir it all up, put it in a mason jar, and wait a few days for the jelly to set.

Have you made your own coffee jelly (or any kind of jelly) before? Have an ingenious way to do this with ground and not instant coffee? Let's hear it in the comments.

Coffee Jelly [Instructables]


    Coffee jelly sounds interesting. Coffee ice-cream topping/jam doesn't so much imho.

      Coffee topping sounds awesome. The jam seems dubious, but I would be willing to give it a shot!

    I drink coffee more than once a day.. I don't need any additional coffee aroma :)
