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


  • 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


  • jelly moulds


  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.

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

      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?
