Orange Jelly: Little Thumbs Up


The weather here is getting hotter, AC is on everyday including the kitchen area! My dish washing machine has been down for nearly a week already, the daily dishes pile up is really a chore to me after being pampered for the last four months. 

Today make a simple Orange Jelly for my son, to be precised it should be agar-agar. Agar-agar which derived from a special type of seaweed. The traditional agar-agar that I used to eat when I was small. My mum loves to make agar-agar for us in this type of shape or in a big plate than cut into diamond shape. Her agar-agar has only two flavors, either rebina or orange.  

Surprisingly, my son loves this agar-agar, I served three agar-agar to him and he refused to let me have one! I'm linking this post to Little Thumbs Up month April hosted by Anncoo Journal






Recipe by Tze of Awayofmind Bakery House

Ingredients:
4g agar agar powder
200ml fresh orange juice (about 4 big oranges)
60~70g sugar (to taste, depends on how sweet the orange is)
300ml water

Method:

1. Pour the agar-agar powder into 300ml water in a pot, boil with high heat until boiling. Add sugar, stir until the sugar dissolved. Remove from heat and pour in the orange juice. 
2. Pour the liquid into Jelly mould. Set aside to cool completely before placing it in the fridge.
