  • Place the water in a small saucepan.
  • Add the gelatin packages and citric acid if using. Set heat to medium low and stir.
  • Continue heating for 15 minutes, stirring slowly to ensure that the gelatin dissolves.

  • Place in freezer for 10-15 minutes or until the gelatin has set.
  • Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
