One package (1 tablespoon) of powdered gelatin equals 4 sheets.

thanks, I guess I have another question then, how many grams is one sheet. I had a recipe that called fo 4g of a gelatin sheet so how would I convert this to powder? I went ahead and dissolved the gelatin in a 1/4 cup of water and used maybe half. I don't think it was enough, the product was a little runny.

I googled gelatin conversion and this is what I found:
1 sheet of gelatin equals 1/10 of an oz
1 tblsp equals 1/3 of an oz. So no you cant switch that out
They can be substituted by exact weight
Hope this helps thumbs_up.gif

Thanks Charmed, it would be kind of hard to do that because then you have to put the liquid factor into it, thanks for your help. I will just have to order the gelatin sheets off line so that I have them. I didn't even think to google it, duh. Thanks again icon_smile.gif
