We recently raided my parents big ol’ Mulberry tree – in full ‘Spring’, weighed down by loads of juicy mulberries ripe for the picking. Picking and eating, eating and picking and eating and eating we did. The kids wanted to make mulberry jelly, which we whipped up in no time using the key ingredient – gelatin. I was happy, as a treat to them became my kitchen medicine! (Just had to save the car and the house from red mulberry juice)!
The claimed healing properties of Gelatin are incredible, aside from strengthening our hair and nails, the collagen helps our joints feel smoother, our wrinkles lighten and helps heal our gut. For more information on gelatin check out this post. When the weather turns warmer, home made bone stocks that offer these wonderful qualities, can be less appealing. A Gelatin powder has quickly become a staple in our home. Particularly important, I believe for our daughter Chloe, as we continue her healing journey.
