When preparing jelly type recipes there seem to be two options gelatin leaf and gelatin powder.
When looking around I found explanations for the ratio of powder to leaf such as here how much powdered gelatin to one gelatin leaf? but I'm struggling to find any good explanation of the difference and when one is preferable over the other.
The only difference I've noticed personally is that it can be a little tricky to get powder right in that if I put it in and don't mix it quickly it can become a separate ball.
So as for the question, Gelatin leaf vs gelatin powder when and why?
