Jelly gems for Women’s day

Today March 8 is International Women’s Day in several countries of the world. It is a significant day for the symbolism of the feminist struggle for women’s rights. In fact, this year, strikes and demonstrations have been called in more than 170 countries to protest against violence and inequality.

In Italy, it has been celebrated this day since before I was born, even they usually give bouquets of mimosa to women on this date. This year I have decided to give some jelly gems to the important women of my life as a symbolic gesture. I share the recipe 🙂
