Serve your favorite fruits with konnyaku jelly in shot glasses, garnish with mint leaves!
Konnyaku jelly has always been made using plastic moulds in the shape of florets, sea shells or stars. When served, they have to be remove from the moulds. They are very pretty, but they are not easy to serve as dessert unless they are placed into individual dessert plates. I started making konnyaku jelly in shot glasses for our parties and they are really a hit!
Fruit Konnyaku Jelly
1 pack (10 g) Konnyaku Jelly
100 g sugar
1000 g water
2 tbsp lime juice
1 dragon fruit
150 g strawberries
Combine jelly powder and sugar in a pan
Add cold water and stir to melt the sugar and jelly powder. Add lime juice
Cook the mixture over high heat till boiling point
Cut all fruit into cubes
Place some fruit cubes into the shot glasses. Pour the jelly mixture to fill up the glasses
Refrigerate till firm. Serve cold and garnish with mint leaves
For a more grownup version, I would add 30 grams of vodka (or more) into the mixture. That would get the party going!
