Low Chemical / Moderate Salicylates
Refer here for the lemon juice substitute recipe. If you are limiting or avoiding citric acid this can be left out.
Most gelatine contains preservative 220, however this can be boiled off as I've done in this recipe. Very sensitive people may still have a problem with this.
Natural food colours contain very high levels of salicylates, however as the colouring is used in such a small amount, it may be suitable to use for those who can tolerate moderate levels of salicylates, or as an occasional treat. An orange coloured jelly can also be made by soaking a few threads of saffron in the lemonade before adding the gelatine.
Lemonade contains some salicylates but is usually OK for most people. You can use any other liquid as an alternative to the lemonade, such as magic cordial, pear syrup or sugar syrup. The jelly used in this recipe is a double quantity of my lemonade jelly recipe; you can also use double quantities of my paw paw jelly or pear jelly recipes.
