RECIPE: Gelatin

100 ml DI water

300 mg gelatin

  1. 300 mg gelatin, pour into a 250 ml Erlenmeyer flask.
  2. Add 100 ml DI water to flask
  3. Microwave on high for 40-45 sec (careful that it does not boil over; if gelatin does not dissolve into solution, increase microwave time).
  4. Non-microwave option: stir solution with stir bar, while heating solution, until it gelatin dissolves into solution (again, be careful to not let it boil over). Step 4 is more time consuming than step 3.
