25 Sep 11 (Sun) - Apple Flavour Konnyaku Jelly

Couple of weeks ago, my colleague, NYP, asked me to make jelly for her. So I told another colleague, CC, who is also pregnant, that I would be bringing jelly the next day and if she would like some as well. She was pretty excited about it and so as promised, I brought jelly to work on 14 September. Unfortunately, CC was on medical leave that day and she sounded disappointed when she found out that there were no more jelly left when she returned to work the following day. So told her that I will make for her next time. Last week, she emailed the team that she will be going on maternity leave from 6 October onwards and so decided to make jelly for her before she goes on leave for three months.

As I was at my sis's place so borrowed the jelly moulds from her SIL. There was one with the shape of two fishes and a few with shapes like heart, seashell, flower and so on. Then bought a bottle of apple juice yesterday during the usual weekend grocery shopping to used in the jelly making. Woke up early and started the cooking. There were some sliced peaches left from the night before and so took three slices, diced them and arranged them in the jelly moulds. Since I was using apple juice, I didn't add extra sugar. So added the jelly powder bit by bit into the boiling apple juice until all used up and dissolved. I noticed that by adding the jelly powder directly, the side of the pot got lumpy easily. I wondered if it was because of the direct addition or because of the bubbles from the boiling apple juice. Scraped them from the side and tried to dissolve them but wasn't very successful. When I turned off the heat, the jelly solution had some lumps in it.

Poured the jelly solution into the moulds and left them on the table to cool before putting them into the fridge to chill. Unmoulded the jelly in the afternoon, took some photos before packing some to bring to office the next day and some arranged on the plate for my younger niece and nephew to eat.
