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.

Rice Krispies treats

We made enough Rice Krispies treats to feed a small army…

Rice Krispies Treats

We had a pretty busy weekend, and it was tough finding time to make anything with the Royal Selangor Jelly Mould for the Jellyriffic Challenge. We were hoping to do at least 4 different creations but ended up only doing 3: yesterday’s Jelly Doughnuts, today’s Rice Krispies treats, and another one for tomorrow.

We had a birthday party to attend in the evening, so we decided to make these Rice Krispies as a dessert offering. The Rice Krispies treats were pretty easy to prepare, but the assembling took a lot of work, especially when the Krispies started to get cool.

Here’s how it was done.

Jelly Doughnuts

We used our Royal Selangor Jelly Mould to make…

The whole point about the Jellyriffic “Get Your Jelly On” challenge is to come up with 30 days’ worth of creative uses for the jelly mould. Over the past week, we’ve done lots of jellies like Dragonfruit Agar-Agar, “Michael Jackson” Agar-Agar, Sirap Selasih Konnyaku, and White Coffee Konnyaku. All interesting jelly recipes, to be sure. But we’ve not really begun thinking “outside the cone” until now.

Annie’s been wanting to try making doughnuts, even though she’s not much in to deep frying. This challenge seemed like the perfect opportunity for us to try something we’ve never done before (same like the Easy Chicken Terrine recipe we did the other day).  She found a doughnut recipe that looked easy and decided to make it this weekend.

Here’s how we did it.

Homemade Vanilla Extract Recipe

If you bake a lot like Annie does, you’ll use a lot of vanilla extract in your recipes. That can be costly, as commercial vanilla extract is expensive. The recipe for how to make your own vanilla extract at home is seriously easy to do, and cheaper in the long run than buying commercial vanilla extract.

But first, let’s back up a bit. Do you recognize this tree?
