Question: how many tablespoons of powdered geletine to leaf gelatine?

March 19, 2011
I'm making a red fruit terrine and the recipe requires 2 tablespoons of powdered gelatine and I'm wondering if I can use the leaf gelatine instead as it's easier to there a sure conversion available?

1 sheet gelatin to 1 tsp powdered gelatin

1 oz powdered to 1 sheet

1 tablespoon to 3 sheets

gelatin sheets have to be softened in cold water and clarified by heating to a liquid. Powdered gelatin has to be sprinkled over the surface of a liquid to soften.

When heating gelatin you must not go over 130 degrees or it loses its setting power.
