Gelatin is not in pepper jelly.
I have a vegetable sandwich filling that uses gelatin if you want.
Aspics can also be salads using tomato juice.
I also have a pretty neat appetizer my DMIL made for teas. It was tomato aspic made in mini-muffin tins with a shrimp in the bottom. To serve the little round of aspic/shrimp was turned out on a Ritz cracker.

I got out my 1964 addition of Joy of Cooking...it has several interesting recipes for aspic salads.
I thought this one looked very nice:

Chicken Aspic

Soak:
1 tbl gelatin
in:
1/2 cup cold water
Dissolve it in:
2 cups boiling chicken broth or stock
Add seasoning if needed.
Chill, and when the gelatin begins to set, rinse a mold in cold water and fill it with:
1/2 inch of the jelly.
Build up layers of:
3 cups cooked, diced chicken
and the jelly. Ornament the layers with:
1 cup canned mushroom caps
2 sliced hard-cooked eggs
12 sliced stuffed olives.
Chill the jelly until firm. Unmold it and serve with or without Mayonnaise.

There are also recipes for assorted vegetable molds, seafood molds, and tomato aspic, if any of you all are interested.

Talking

As far as uses for unflavored gelatin I don't have a clue. I am sure that some of our great cooks and chefs will come up with something.

Have a great day.
