Kiwi And Berries Jelly~Agar-Agar


Just last week, I lamented that the weather was not Summer like over here in Vancouver. Guess what? The sun is finally out, and I couldn't be happier. Got the kids to join me on a stroll along the beach and we enjoyed a little picnic as well over the weekend. I packed some salad with grilled chicken and a refreshing Kiwi And Berries Jelly to cool us down. Anyway, my summer vacation starts tomorrow, and I will try to share some new recipes with you whenever possible. So, have a great summer everyone!


Kiwi And Berries Jelly~Agar-Agar

Ingredients


2 Kiwi Fruits, peeled and sliced
125 g Blueberries, rinsed
170 g Blackberries, rinsed
70 g Raspberries, rinsed
10 Medium-Sized Strawberries, hulled and sliced

4 Cups of Water
3 tsp Agar-Agar Powder
½ Cup Rose Water
6 Tbsp Sugar, or more to taste

1-rectangular baking dish or tin

Method

In a large saucepan, combine water, agar-agar powder, rose water, and sugar and bring it to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until agar-agar and sugar completely dissolves, about 10 minutes.

Take the pan off the heat immediately, and strain the contents into a baking dish. Set aside to cool for about 5 minutes, and scattered the fruits into the agar-agar mixture. When cool, chill the jelly in the refrigerator. Cut as desired and serve chilled.

  2. This looks gorgeous. I always think of jelly as being a kids food but this is definitely sophisticated enough to serve to adults.

Raw Energy Bars~Chocolate, Cashew, And Almond

I get energized everytime I make Raw Energy Bars at home. I have tried several recipes and flavors before; but, this Chocolate, Cashew, and Almond flavor is currently my favorite!

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
