Definition of jelly bag in English:
A fine mesh bag used for straining the juice from cooked fruit, especially so that this liquid can be made into jelly.
- You can either put the seeds in a jelly bag or cheesecloth and squeeze out the juice or drink the juice right out of the fruit.
- And, of course, there is the huge brass ‘jeelie pan’ on top of the cupboard, with the jelly bag hanging alongside.
- Have your scrupulously clean jelly bag or double muslin-lined sieve suspended over a bowl.
