Recipe type: Chinese Dessert
Cuisine: Asian
Serves: 16 mini jellies
  • 2 tsp dried osmanthus fragrans 桂花*
  • 2 tsp dried wolfberries – soaked in hot water for 15 mins, until puffy
  • 1 packet Konnyaku Jelly Powder (there are a few different brands, feel free to use any you like)
  1. As per the instructions on the box of Jelly powder, add in the stated amount of water and bring to boil. (Mine was using 500 ml water, please adjust volume of osmanthus and wolfberries accordingly.)
  2. Rinse the osmanthus and add into the boiling water. Lower heat and let them infuse in the water for about 5 mins. At this point, you can choose to fish out all or some of the osmanthus flowers (I took out half of them) if you do not like to taste of the petals in the jelly.
  3. Add the jelly powder into the pot and stir until dissolve. It should take no more than 5 mins.
  4. Turn off heat and pour the liquid jelly into the moulds. Drop 2 - 3 wolfberries into each mould. Allow to cool for 15 mins before refrigerating the jelly for a few hours, until chilled.
