Methods For Preparing Jelly And Ice Cream

Updated on September 1, 2011

Jelly and ice creams are some recipes useful for people to get some relax from the hot sun during summer days. Jelly is often liked by most of children and it can be prepared in different attractive colors. It is different from other fruit products by crystal clear and glassy appearance. Jelly is prepared from fresh fruits such as guava, orange and mango. The Pectin is only thing which gives glassy or crystal clear appearance. Naturally pectin is found abundant in fruits like guava and banana.

Guava jelly, pineapple jelly, mango jelly and orange jelly are some of the jellies which can be prepared in our home.


To prepare Guava jelly following things are required. Guava fruit 1 kg, Water 1500 ml, sugar 1 kg, citric acid 10 gm and raspberry red color in required amount.

Fresh guava ( 1 kg ) is peeled, cut into slices and boiled in a pressure cooker, after adding 1500 ml of water, for 20 minutes. The juice is filtered and mixed with sugar and citric acid. The mixture is filtered and again heated for 10 minutes. At this stage a test called Ladle Test is performed to determine the end point. For this a small amount of content is held on the ladle used for stirring. The end point is said to be the entire lump falls at once without sticking to the ladle. If the juice fall drop by drop then it is decided that the end point has not reached and in that case heating is to be continued till the end point is reached. After achieving the end point the content is cooled, essence and color are added. Now the product can be stored in the fridge to attain desirable shape.


The things required are 1 kg of Pineapple, mango or orange, 1500 ml of water, 1 kg of sugar, 10 gm of pectin and 10 gm of citric acid.

Any one of the fruit other than Guava is initially peeled out and mixed with about 1500 ml of water and boiled in a opened vessel for 10 to 15 minutes. In another vessel 10 gm of pectin is added with 200 gm of sugar and 10 gm of citric acid and the mixture is slowly added with the boiling solution while stirring constantly. Finally rest of the sugar is added. The solution is filtered and again heated to perform the ladle test. After reaching the end the product is ready for storing in freezer to get glassy form of the jelly.


These are processed milk recipes served in frozen condition. Carefully prepared nutritious ice creams can be considered as some what good for health. Both children and adult love this recipe to eat. In summer days the demand of ice creams will be reached peak in all parts of the world. These are available in various flavours such as chocolate, vanila, straw berry, mango and etc.,

Softness is very important thing which determines the quality of any ice cream. Many of our people fail to bring softness when they prepare ice cream in their home. We can certainly prepare an ice cream of commercial standard when we know what are the things to be added to prepare a quality ice cream. Butter and Creams are the things which make softness of ice cream and more over we need to beat well the mixture of contents when we prepare it in our home.


To make ice cream from ice cream powder following things are needed

1. Ice cream powder.

This is available in market in various flavours in 100 gm to 200 gm pack. We can select our favorable flavor of ice cream powder.

2. Condensed Milk

This is prepared by boiling the cow milk until a part of water content in the milk evoporates. We can judge the quality of a condensed milk by its pale yellow color and thickness.

3. Sugar

Mostly Ice cream powders contain enough sugar when we buy them. If we feel the lack of sugar we can add little bit more.

4. Butter, corn flour and Cream

These are essentially required to make a successfull ice cream.

About 100 gm of your favorite flavored icecream powder is mixed with 500 ml of condensed milk, 2 tab.spoon of butter or cream. Then beat the mixture well in a mixi and keep them in a refrigirator for half an hour, but not in a freezer. After getting cool down, take the mixture out and again beat them well. Now transfer the product to freezer to get tasty ice cream.


To make pista ice cream following things are needed. Crusted pista, 3 cups of milk, 5 tab. spoon corn flour, 3/4 cup sugar, vanilla essence in required quantity, 1 cup of cream and desired color.

Dissolve corn flour in little water. Boil the milk and add diluted corn flour. Cook well until it becomes thick. Now mix enough sugar and let the mixture cool down. Now add vanilla essence and desirable color and beat the mixture well. Keep them in a refrigirator but not in a freezer and after some time again beat the mixture well and transfer it to the freezer.
