When I was in Hong Kong 2 weeks ago, one of my shopping missions was to buy some dried osmanthus flowers to bring back to Singapore (update: it’s now easy to buy them locally).

I wanted to make a refreshing and healthy osmanthus flower tea jelly (桂花糕) with it. I love the wonderful aroma of the flowers, which is distinctive and yet, gentle at the same time.

          the konnyaku jelly powder I use (see photo above) is a premix, there is no need to add anything else. personally, I am not familiar with adding malic acid to make jelly.

            so do i need to add?? Because my konnyaku jelly powder inside got one packet of malic acid…n it doesn’t say its premix…

            • wiffy replied: — March 19th, 2012 @ 10:49 am

              should be… I googled and found out malic acid is to make the jelly solidify faster. Check out the packaging instructions…

                Okay… And the packaging instruction say need to add malic acid so i just follow the instruction??

        Just to check do we need to rinse the osmanthus flower?

        • wiffy replied: — February 20th, 2013 @ 7:01 pm

          yes, better to rinse before use.

    I was inspired by your blog and tried this today. But the flowers sink to the bottom of the jelly while the wolf berries sink to the bottom. How can I make them evenly distributed in the jelly?

    Hi! I came across your website as I’m looking to buy dried osmanthus flowers in hk. Can I ask where you bought yours? Thanks!

      we bought it from the seafood street. You need to check price before buying. If you are from Singapore, the flowers are sold at Fu Hua.

    I bought a packet of dried osmanthus flower. Can it be kept in the fridge? How long can it be kept? When the flowers turn brown, can I still use it?

      I kept mine in the freezer for a long time (years) without any change in colour. Personally I will discard if I notice any colour change.

    Hi,
    i was wondering if using agar agar powder or normal gelatin would be the same as the konnyaku powder you used? Because it’s not a product that’s available where i live (>n<)
    Would the measurements be the same as well??

    • wiffy replied: — December 12th, 2014 @ 3:31 pm

      the texture of agar agar or gelatin is different from konnyaku, but sure you can use them. Follow the instructions on packaging for the liquid requirement :)

    Wiffy, I could feel the coarse texture of the flowers in the jelly, which is not that palatable. Is this a norm?

    • wiffy replied: — January 15th, 2015 @ 12:21 pm

      that is not normal; are the flowers you use bigger than the ones in the photos? Try to use a bit less flowers and see if it helps.

    Hi. Is there anyway to prevent the flowers and wolfberries from settling to the bottom of the jelly?
