Fruit Ice Jellies

I’d been trying to create a half ice, half jelly concoction for the Royal Selangor Jellyriffic Challenge, but didn’t quite know how to go about it.

The problem was, if I froze the ice portion then made the jelly, the ice portion would be too heavy and cause the jelly to collapse under the weight. If I made the ice portion on the bottom, the jelly portion would be frozen while waiting for the ice portion to freeze. So that wouldn’t work either. Hmm….

And then, I figured it out.


Engagement Jelly

I don’t think I’ve ever been as nervous as I was that day.

I had been fiddling with the ring in my pocket all day, and here I was, finally, in line at Waiola Shave Ice waiting to give my order.

“What’ll you have?”

“Two large cones with ice cream. Li hing and Melona flavors,” I rattled off the order just like I had many times before. “Oh, and, uh, can you put this on top of one of the ice creams, underneath the shave ice?” My hand was shaking as I gave him the ring, sealed inside a tiny plastic ziploc baggie. “I’m going to propose to my girlfriend today.”


Orange "Dream-jiggle"

I don’t know about you, but during hot summer days, I absolutely love getting those Orange Creamsicles to enjoy. The tart-sweet flavors to the orange ice combined with the sweet vanilla ice cream in the middle is one of my fun summer indulgences. And of course, now that we live in Malaysia where it is summer all the time, I try to get these sweet treats every so often to enjoy.

So when it came time for the Royal Selangor Jellyriffic challenge, I knew I wanted to try to turn this ice treat into a jelly. I could visualize exactly what I wanted to do but I wasn’t sure if I could actually make the concept I had in my head translate into a real jelly. So, I shared with Nate my thoughts and vision.

He told me it sounded doable and so I put in on the list. A few days ago, I decided it was time to get to it.


Golden Mango Kiwi Konnyaku

Third time’s a charm, they say. They also say that it takes a woman’s touch. I’d say both had something to do with today’s jelly:

Mango and kiwi fruit jelly

From the beginning of this Jellyriffic challenge, I’ve been trying to make a mango jelly that incorporated chunks of real mango in it. It’s mango season here in Kuching (among other fruits), and there is an abundance of sweet, ripe mangoes to be had. So I wanted to use some of the fresh local fruits in our jellies, like the Dragonfruit Agar-Agar that we made at the beginning.
