Do you have any information about sheet gelatin?

Rating: 90

Sheet gelatin may be an ingredient in older recipes of European origin. To substitute powdered gelatin, use the following conversion: five sheets, each approximately 2 7/8" x 8 1/2", are equal to the gel strength of 1 envelope of Knox gelatin. A typical recipe might call for 1-1/4 sheets. This would be equivalent to approximately 3/4-teaspoon powdered gelatin. One sheet would be equal to 1/2-teaspoon gelatin.
