How to Chill Jello Faster

When serving jello, you’ll want your jello to be solid. It takes about four hours of chill time in the refrigerator to achieve this state. Overnight is best.

However, you can get jello to set faster by chilling the container before you pour in your mixture.

You can also stir the gelatin mixture constantly in a metal bowl over an ice bath until it begins to set.

    • Hi Janet! Mango nectar is essentially a mango puree that has been sweetened and thinned out with simple syrup. So if you use a puree just keep in mind that it might not turn out as sweet and it may not turn out as dense.
