We dare say we're not the only ones with a runny nose right now… are we? :) If you too are not feeling well, you have a headache and a scratchy throat, come and make jelly candies with us, which will literally kick the immune system and make it easier for the body to fight flu, colds and flu. They're ready in no time, they're easier to make than you think, and they really work. In addition, they are very good and taste good to children and adults alike!

Loaded with vitamins

When we have a cold, we often reach for various medicines from the pharmacy, which do give us relief, but they usually contain a lot of unnecessary substances such as refined sugar or various dyes. We have therefore decided to create home helpers to support immunity, made only from the most health-promoting ingredients, which will not need to be difficult to find. You will definitely find most of them at home.

Fighters against the common cold

We bet on turmeric, a golden miracle that can deal with almost everything, often even helping much faster and more effectively than expensive drugs. Turmeric is even being talked about as a promising cancer cure (kuk). Turmeric has very strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. That is why it has been used for centuries to treat colds, flu, colds, coughs and respiratory diseases in general. Because it copes well with inflammation of all kinds, it also relieves joint and muscle pain. So if your knees or hips ache, for example when the weather changes, try turmeric. It also works against depression, so our orange candies will be a great helper in melancholic autumn days. Turmeric stimulates digestion, therefore promotes weight loss, and relieves stomach pain. The substance that makes turmeric do all this is called curcumin. In order for curcumin to be absorbed into the blood, it is important to always consume turmeric together with a little pepper or ginger.

But we didn't add ginger to our jelly just to ensure the effects of turmeric. Ginger, like turmeric, fights colds and flu very well. We probably all know how much ginger tea can help when we don't feel well. Ginger also helps with nausea and indigestion, relieves joint pain and warms the body perfectly. And that comes in handy when you have a cold! (The desired sweating will also be supported by an effective ginger bath - kuk).

We also added a pinch of licorice to the jelly, which is like a balm for the respiratory tract and our immunity, everyone's favorite cinnamon, which further multiplies the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects of the other ingredients (we write about everything cinnamon can do in the cinnamon article: kuk) and topped it off with honey, o whose capabilities we probably don't need to talk about at length. In addition, honey sweetens the jelly and subtly suppresses the unpleasant heat of ginger and bitterness of turmeric, so we don't need to use any sugar.

And why does it all hold together? Thanks agar. Agar is a natural powder obtained from seaweed, which has an excellent gelling ability. It's often used in Asian cuisine, and you can make a lot more things with it than just jelly. With agar, you can cook an excellent pudding, make a great topping for fruit cakes or sweet cupcakes, use it to conjure homemade gummy bears, or even fun shower jelly. In short, you can use agar wherever you would put gelatin. Of course, you can also use it here.

We knew from the beginning that we wanted to create a recipe for citrus jelly, with orange and lemon, which goes well with ginger and turmeric. Coincidentally, we were drinking our favorite turmeric latte while we were cooking the candies, and we thought of making jelly out of it too... and it worked! So we have two recipes for cold jelly for you. The first is citrusy, refreshing and spicy, with carrots that beautifully balance the sharp taste of ginger and turmeric, and the second is a turmeric latte, spicy, softened with vegetable milk. You will definitely choose!

Citrus jelly with carrot, turmeric and ginger

What does it take?

- 1 cup carrot puree (mixed cooked carrots)

- 1 cup (250 ml) of orange juice

- 1 cup (125 ml) of water

- Juice from one orange

- Juice of one lemon

- 1 teaspoon of turmeric

- 1 teaspoon of ginger

- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon

- 1 teaspoon licorice

- 3 teaspoons of agar

- A pinch of Himalayan salt

- 3 spoons of honey or syrup

And also prepare silicone molds (if you don't have them, get them, they will be useful for many more things, for example for the best homemade chocolate ) or a glass baking dish greased with coconut oil.

How to do it?

Whisk the carrot puree, orange juice and water in a saucepan. Add all the spices and agar, mix well and turn on the stove. Bring to a boil and cook for about 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Then remove from the heat, sweeten with honey (do not boil it, it would lose its precious properties) or syrup and quickly pour the mixture into pre-prepared molds or into a greased baking pan.

Leave the jelly to harden in the fridge, this will take an hour or two. Then remove it from the molds or, if you used a baking pan, cut the jelly into the desired shapes and turn it out.

Store in a resealable container. They last a week in the fridge, but you can also freeze them and pull them out whenever you need them! :)

Golden milk gelatin candies

What does it take?

- 1 cup (250 ml) vegetable milk

- 1 cup (60 ml) of water

- 1 teaspoon of turmeric

- 1 teaspoon of ginger

- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon

- 2 teaspoons of agar

- A pinch of Himalayan salt

- A pinch of freshly ground pepper

- 2 spoons of honey or syrup

How to do it?

The procedure is the same as for the previous recipe. Mix everything, except honey, in a saucepan, mix well, bring to a boil and cook for about 3 minutes. Sweeten and pour into moulds. Let it harden in the fridge and that's it!
