These tasty niblets I’m making for a pre luncheon amuse this week. They are refreshing, cooling, rich in gut healing and muscle soothing amino acids. As with any animal products, it’s all about the quality and it does matter how they were raised and what they were fed. I use Bulletproof Collagelatin witch has a broader amino acid profile than other gelatin, but Great Lakes make a great gelatin as well. Pretty much, you get the long list benefits from bone broth but in tasty little bites and without hours of cooking.
Cucumber jelly’s


3 Tbs collagelatin

3 cups cucumber juice

Juice from 1/2 of a lemon

2 Tbs raw honey

1/2 tsp peppermint spirits

Pinch of salt
1. Combine 1/2 of the cucumber juice in a sauce pot and gently heat until just warm( you don’t want to become hot as it destroys the delicate cucumber flavor.)

2. Remove from heat, add honey and stir until combined

3. Add collagelatin and mix with a stick blender until dissolved

4. Add remaining ingredients and stir

5. lightly oil a dish or fun shaped molds and pour in the liquid
