There is a layer (about .5cm) of skin on the bottom of my Jello that’s difficult to cut through with a spoon. My mom’s was never like this!

Probably the gelatin powder wasn’t mixed up well enough. The gelatin part separated a bit from the sugar and flavor part while setting, could be a temperature thing going from the counter into the fridge. You know… the chewies is the best part. Are you using seaweed gelatin or other kind, might have something to do with it but I’m not sure.

The horse hove they make the gelatin from didn’t dissolve right.

@syz My sentiments exactly.

It sounds like you just didn’t mix it well…

You didn’t know how to boil water right?
