Jellies & Their Moulds

Jellies & Their Moulds by Peter Brears

An exhaustive look at jellies in England, starting in the medieval era, to the present day.

From the first recipes that produce recognizable jellies (and even a couple that don't look like jellies nowadays), to the ingredients (animal and vegetable) that can be used as the base, to the progress in technology and recipes that allowed more and more marvelous jellies -- with less work, as you stopped having to boil calves' hooves for seven hours to get the stuff.

Includes a lot of recipes that I can't vouch for, not having tested them myself.
