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.

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake ~ 2013

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.

Ondeh Ondeh Pandan Cupcakes ~ 香兰小蛋糕

Ondeh Ondeh are green coloured and pandan flavoured glutinous rice balls with gula melaka or palm sugar filling, coated with freshly grated coconut.  We call it 'Kuih'.  Ondeh Ondeh cake is entirely different from this 'Kuih'.
I don't know how the name 'Ondeh Ondeh cake' came about but I guess it's because of the colour and the ingredients which are somewhat similar to that of the 'kuih'.
This pandan flavoured Ondeh Ondeh cupcake is moist, soft and slightly spongy and the gula melaka filling blends awfully well with the pandan and 'santan'/coconut milk.  A wonderful tea-time snack or a delectable dessert, any time!
