爱玉冰 Honey Lemon Iced Jelly

This is one of my favourites refreshing dessert  which was first tasted 10 years ago in Taipei. I miss it crazily and couldn't forget the taste ever since I leave Taiwan.

Few years ago when I was doing groceries shopping in a supermarket and happened to saw this special jelly powder., without thinking too much I bought it to try.

At first I followed the packet instruction to make the jelly. It's tasteless but the jelly consistency is exactly the same that I had before. I make my own honey lemon juice go along with the jelly and finally it is exactly what I have been hunger for long long ago. After the first experiment, this dessert had become one of the dish for serving my guests always because it is so easy to made and could be made in advance. Most importantly it is very refreshing especially after a heavy meal.

I am submitting this post to Asian Food Fest #10 Aug 2014 : Taiwan hosted by travelling-foodies.

For the recipe you need a packet of this jelly powder. Boil 1 litre of water until bubbling. Turn of the heat and immediately add a packet of jelly powder into the hot boiling water. Stir until everything dissolve. Pour into a shallow dish wait until it cool.dowm then chill in the fridge to set.
For the honey lemon juice. Mix 500 ml water  with 2/3 cups of honey and 1 freshly squeeze lemon juice (I don't have the exact amount of quantity, so please mix and balance the sweetness to suit your taste). Mix everything until well combine and taste the sweetness or add more water if needed. Chill in the fridge.
Right before serving, cut the jelly into cube sizes and add into the honey lemon then add two cups of ice cube or more.  Enjoy!
