I have a question about the recipe "Conversation Hearts" from Erin McDowell. I don't have a microwave. What is the suggested process for melting the gelatin without a microwave?
You usually soften it in a bit of liquid in a small cup, then place the cup in a shallow pan of hot water (off heat)- I haven't read this recipe, but that's the usual procedure (never heard of using a microwave, actually).
Erin is a baking aficionado, writer, stylist, and Test Kitchen Manager at Food52. She is currently writing a cookbook.
You can bloom it in a heat-safe bowl, then warm it over a small pot of simmering water - it will melt in no time!

Well played. You deserve a cookie.
