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.

    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.

Biscoff Butter Cake ~ 牛油蛋糕

The recipe for this Biscoff Butter Cake is similar to my earlier post of Marble Butter Cake, just that I added an extra ingredient which is, crushed Biscoff cookies.    Instead of mixing the crushed cookies into the batter, I just sprinkled them on top of the first layer of batter and then cover with the remaining batter.   This cake is soft and moist with good texture ..... definitely a recipe for keeps!

Salted egg yolk cookies ~ 咸蛋黄酥饼 ~ CNY 2016

Salted egg yolk recipes are getting very popular these days.  There are salted egg yolk with crabs, salted egg yolk with chicken, salted egg yolk with bittergourd and salted egg yolk bun, just to name a few.  Being the inquisitive me, I tried baking the salted egg yolk cookies just to taste what's it like.   It's quite difficult to describe the taste, it's neither totally sweet nor totally savoury, it's a blend of both which makes it unique, yet delicious.


I like the small bits of salted egg yolk in the dough.  I let the dough rest in the refrigerator for more than 2 hours and it was more pliable to handle.
