once upon a jelly time ...
in a Midwestern suburb not so far from anywhere, two sisters with a culinary bend and OCD issues created the recipes, concepts and photographs that became Jelly Shot Test Kitchen. The blog launched in August 2009, with a book deal following shortly thereafter. Now in its sixth year of operations, Jelly Shot Test Kitchen continues to push the gelatin envelope with innovative recipes, as well as new techniques for preparation and inspired presentation. Since its inception, millions have visited the Jelly Shot Test Kitchen blog for the best in beautiful, original cocktail-inspired jellies and gelatin desserts.
Jelly Shot Test Kitchen recipes and photographs have been been featured in numerous online and print publications, including: The Wall Street Journal; Vogue Magazine; Martha Stewart Weddings; Rachael Ray Everyday; Glamour; Brides magazine and many many more. In 2011, Running Press released our self-titled recipe book, "Jelly Shot Test Kitchen - Jelling Classic Cocktails One Drink at a Time," (available on Amazon, and in bookstores everywhere). The book focuses on classic cocktail inspired jellies, made with real cocktail ingredients. The book also includes a brief history of jelly shots, and many techniques for the home jelly shot maker.
