I made this jelly on impulse because I saw some nice sweet lychees being sold and beetroot is in the fridge.
No artificial flavours and colours used and as you all know.. I love natural pigments.
I used 1tsp Mermaid brand (AAA grade) and my family liked the texture. Some brands tend to be inferior with less gelling ability. So, the amount depends on the brand that you use. The jelly is firm enough to be lifted with a fork but soft enough to be slurped down. How firm you want to make the jelly is up to your preference. and the sweetness for this is on the mild side. Something that I prefer to bring out the rose fragrance and I want the lychee be the sweet factor in this dessert.
