Osmanthus Jelly Recipe

If you are not using pre-sweetened konnyaku jelly powder, add appropriate amounts of sugar to taste.

Serves: 4

Prep Time: 5 mins

Cook Time: 10 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 packet of pre-sweetened konnyaku jelly powder (mine is 250g)
  • water (according to the konnyaku jelly powder box instructions; mine requires 1250ml)
  • dried osmanthus flowers 桂花 (1 to 1.5 tsp for every 400ml water)
  • 2 tsp wolfberries soaked in water until puffy; drained

Tools

  • jelly moulds

Directions

  1. In a pot, add water and bring to a boil. When water is boiling, lower heat and then add osmanthus flowers. Simmer for a short few minutes (roughly 2 minutes).
  2. Add konnyaku jelly powder. Stir until the powder is fully dissolved. Off the flame.
  3. Add 2-4 wolfberries to each jelly mould, then pour the jelly solution prepared in step 2 to fill each mould. Let the jelly cool down a bit in room temperature and chill in fridge until the jelly is set.

          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…

        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.
