Konnyaku jelly with Honey citron tea



To combat the current hot weather these days, I made this konnyaku jelly with honey citron tea to ward off the heat from our body system.  Honey citron tea known as Yuja in Korean and Yuzu in Japanese is a traditional Korean tea known to be a good cold and flu remedy.  It contains 1.5 times more natural vitamin C then the orange and taking this helps to overcome fatique as well.  Making a hot drink with a couple of teaspoons of this jelly marmalade makes a very soothing beverage for sore throat.  Here's what I did and you'll agree with me that it's super easy.

  











This yuja jelly has a distinctive flavour ~ a mix of orange and lemon with the citron peel lending a slight bitter taste somewhat akin to grapefruit.

Recipe for Konnyaku jelly with Honey citron tea

Ingredients
  • 1 packet of 250 gm konnyaku jelly powder + 1 packet of malic acid
  • 1000 ml plain water
  • 4  Tbsp honey citron tea jam
  • 250 ml hot water
Preparation
  1. Dissolve the honey citron tea jam with hot water, mix well.
  2. As per instructions on the packet, pour the jelly powder into a pot.
  3. Add in the citron tea mixture, water and cook on high heat.  Keep stirring to prevent mixture from becoming lumpy.
  4. Once boiling, reduce to low heat and boil for another 3 mins.
  5. Turn off heat and stir in the malic acid till dissolved.
  6. Pour into moulds.  Allow jelly to set, cool. 
  7. Keep refrigerated overnight.
  8. Serve chilled.

  I must say a big 'Thank You' to Yummylittlecooks and Vivian Pang for this award.

    1. Yes, it's available in Jusco at the section where they have Korean and Japanese stuff. But it's a different brand, think it's more or less the same.

  4. I must get a bottle of this honey citron tea from Jusco too since it has so much vit C and the bitter after taste would be good for me. I love konnyaku jelly :)

  7. These jellies sounded incredibly good. I definitely won't stop at one. The citron tea jam cost around RM20 per jam.Is it more expensive at Jusco?
    Happy weekend.

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…
