After all the heavy dinner and creamy cheesy desserts, let's settle for some light and refreshing konnyaku jelly. It's really simple to make and the kids will sure loved it....mine did. My kids just loved any types of jelly or konnyaku. ^-^ In fact I too like jelly or konnyaku especially when the weather is hot and you need something to refresh and chew on. It doesn't take too much time to prepare, only a few hours of setting in the refrigerator, that always ended up testing the kids patience. So, the finale of the menu today is the 'Jasmine Green Tea Konnyaku Jelly' that I extracted from my newly bought book – "Making Yogurt & Pudding" by Joy of Cooking.
Here's the recipe, it's really simple, and the fragrant jasmine green tea gives this jelly dessert a refreshing zing! So give it a try! Happy Konnyaku Making!
