Cooking Time

Less than 30 minutes

Serving Size

12 x Pork Jelly Shells (4cm diameter)

Main Ingredients:

100ml Pork Jelly Cubes (this may vary depending on the size of moulds you use)

Recipe Instructions

Place the pork jelly cubes into a pan on low-medium heat and fully melt the cubes, stirring from time to time to accelerate the process.


Divide the liquid pork jelly equally between the silicone mould shapes.


Pick up the mould tray and slowly tilt the tray in a circular motion in order to coat all the sides of each shape. Once the sides are all well coated, place the tray in the fridge for an hour or so until fully set.


Remove the mould tray from the fridge, and carefully rub the top of the domes with your finger until the pork jelly loosens from the side of the mould and then carefully pull out each pork jelly shell.


Your pork jelly shells are now ready.


Ideally, purchase your pig skin from pasture raised animals that are Nitrate, Nitrite & Additive Free.
