11 Aug 12 (Sat) - Honeydew Flavour Konnyaku Jelly with Peaches and Kiwi Seeds

I was invited to a "Samseng" party organised by KLF's cell group and it was pot luck style so decided to bring jelly to the party. Had a couple of ideas in mind, one was to make lingonberry flavour with kiwi seeds and the other was to make honeydew flavour with peaches and kiwi seeds in blue color. In the end, I decided to go with the latter since the honeydew essence, the packet of kiwi seeds and the blue coloring were opened and used before. In addition, I thought blue jelly looks kind of cool and make a nice contrast to the yellow peaches.

10g konnyaku jelly power
210g sugar
950ml water
1/2 tsp kiwi seeds
2 tsp honeydew flavouring
6 slices of canned peaches
a few drops of blue food coloring

1.  Soak kiwi seeds in water for 20 mins then drain away the water, remove any husks and set aside
2.  Cut the peaches into smaller pieces and put a couple of pieces into each jelly mould
3.  Mix the konnyaku jelly powder and sugar in a bowl
4.  Boil water in a pot and add kiwi seeds
5.  Add the konnyaku jelly powder and sugar mixture slowly into the water, stirring all the time until the powder and sugar are fully dissolved
6.  Add the honeydew flavouring and blue food coloring, stir till the color is well mixed then off the flame
7.  Pour the jelly solution into each mould
8.  Let the jelly cool down to room temperature and chill in fridge till the jelly is set
