Yes, processing durians is not as simple as it may appear so I tried pre-processed durians to make a durian jelly.

Gelatin is good for health

I always knew that gelatin or gelatine was good for health. Just Google for “is jelly good for health” and I found some good articles. Please read how gelatine is good for joints and great health benefits of gelatine and there are lots more articles on the internet.

For muslims, one must take note that not all gelatine is halal as the animals may have not been slaughtered the muslim way but there is vegetarian gelatin now available. I have not tried the vegetarian gelatine yet.

Having said that lets make some jelly.
