Osmanthus and wolfberries Konnyaku Jelly

It is very good to feed wolfberries to kids and even to adults.  You can just packed it into a small container and let the kiddo nibble on it as snack.  Much better than giving candy.

Wolfberries are extremely good for eyes.  Perhaps if kids take more of this, myopia might not be so common especially we are always on gadgets.

I love Osmanthus too as it has such a gentle flora smell to it.

During Lunar New Year, making Osmanthus and wolfberries Konnyaku Jelly seems  pular as it symbolise 年年有鱼 (meaning: abundance)

So this is just perfect for a get together during this period for family and friends.

I just realised how hideous my fishes look.  Next time I will find small wolfberries.

What you need:

1 packet of konnyaku jelly powder 
200g sugar
900ml water (as I prefer a firmer texture)
4 tsp dried osmanthus flowers
4 tbsp wolfberries soaked in water until puffy; drained


Mix konnyaku jelly powder with sugar.  Set aside.

In a pot, add water and bring to a boil. 

Lower heat and add osmanthus flowers. Simmer for about 3 minutes.

Add konnyaku jelly powder. Stir until the powder is fully dissolved. Turn off heat.

Rinse jelly mould and pour the jelly mixture onto a jelly mould. 

Add wolfberries.

Let the jelly cool down a bit in room temperature and chill in fridge until the jelly is set.



  1. You call them hideous? That's just not fair! They look fantastic.
    Have a great weekend, Edith!
