Apple Pie-in-the-Sky

Taking the apple pie to heights never before seen!

Apple pie-in-the-sky with apple cider jelly

Man, this truly almost became a pie-in-the-sky project! I’ve been thinking of apples and how to use them in the Royal Selangor Jellyriffic Challenge and as Nate hinted at in yesterday’s Mulled Apple Cider Konnyaku post, this was supposed to be part of that post.

Why wasn’t it part of the post? Well, obviously there were some hiccups so we had to problem-solve the issues and thankfully, it all worked out and here it is now today. Better late than never!

"Tall-dorf" salad

Waldorf salad is one of my favorite salads. I like its combination of sweet, savory and tangy flavors, and crisp and bursty textures. We took a winning Waldorf salad recipe and stood it up on its head.

When we were brainstorming ideas for the Royal Selangor Jellyriffic Challenge, Annie suggested making a Waldorf salad in jelly form. As she described it to me, at first I was skeptical. But the more the idea turned over in my head, the more I warmed up to it. Plus, I love puns: standing the Waldorf salad up turns it into a “Tall-dorf” salad :-P ! So I agreed that we should do it.

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.

Orange Dreamsicle Jelly

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.
