Agar Jelly with Grass Jelly

After the first attempt of making seaweed jelly with coconut milk, I’ve been thinking of other alternatives to make the jelly more interesting, and yet not complicated. The first idea popped up in my mind to add in grass jelly cubes. With black-colored grass jelly, I can eliminate other colorings, and I’m able to add patterns to the jelly. A stone to kill two birds.

Agar Jelly with Grass Jelly

25g agar jelly powder
3500ml water
8 screw pine leaves, tied into knots
250g grass jelly, cut into cubes
sugar to taste

1. Bring water to boil. 
2. Add screw pine leave and leave the water simmers for 5 minutes or more. 
3. Add sugar to taste. 
4. Pour in agar-agar jelly powder and stir to dilute it. Boil for few minutes. 
5. Add grass jelly cubes in the heat-proof containers. 
6. Pour in the agar-agar mixture into the containers. 
7. Leave it cool to room temperature and fridge it. 
8. Serve cold.
