Bowles Mint Jelly

This is a scheduled post.
This jelly is something either you like it or you dislike it. You’ll like it if you like the smell of Bowles mint, or vice verse. Hubby requested some jelly as water soluble fiber to his diet. Here comes the new flavor for him since I have lots of home grown Bowles mint leaves harvested. Hubby did not comment much, but he finished up the jelly in few days time. 

Bowles Mint Jelly

5 tbsp of agar-agar powder
1600ml water
20 Bowles mint leaves, rinsed under running water

1. Boil 1600ml water in a pot. Add Bowles mint leaves when boiling.
2. Leave it simmers for 5 minutes.
3. Mix in the agar-agar powder. Add brown sugar to taste. Leave it simmers for 3 minutes.
4. Remove the Bowles mint leaves. Off the fire, and leave the agar-agar mixture to cool for few minutes in the pot.
5. Pour it into jelly moulds. Cool it to room temperature.
