Edible Varnish
« on: September 20, 2014, 11:53:54 am »
Edible Varnish

    1 t. gelatin
    3 t. water
    1 t. liquid glucose

Sprinkle gelatin in the water. Let stand until it becomes spongy. Dissolve until clear over hot, not boiling water. Add the liquid glucose and stir until ingredients are well combined. Pour this mixture into an airtight container. The mixture will get very stiff. To use it, heat the varnish in a container of hot, not boiling, water. Paint onto the item to be varnished while the mixture is still hot. The edible varnish should NOT be kept in the refrigerator.

Hello
Thank you very much for the recipe but
I would like to know when you say 1 t. gelatin
that means 1 tablespoon or 1 teaspoon?

The ratios would be the same.  You can either use Tablespoon or teaspoon... but do the same for all three ingredients (all using teaspoon, or all using tablespoon).
