Mulled Apple Cider Konnyaku

Most people think of enjoying a hot cup of mulled apple cider on a cold Fall or Winter evening, but here’s a surprise: it’s good as a jelly too!

Mulled Apple Cider Konnyaku

The recipe for mulled apple cider is quite simple.

Mulled Apple Cider Konnyaku Recipe

Prep time: 30 min / Total Time: 4 hrs


500 ml apple juice
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp allspice berries
1/2 tsp cardamom seeds
1 cinnamon stick
5 g konnyaku powder


1. Pour the apple juice into a sauce pan and bring to a simmer over medium heat.

2. Place the spices into a small stock pouch and then toss the pouch into the apple juice. Turn the heat to low and let it steep for 20 minutes.

3. Remove the spice pouch and add the konnyaku powder. Whisk until the powder is dissolved.

4. Pour the hot mulled cider into each Royal Selangor Jelly Mould then refrigerate for 4 hours.

(optional: you can choose to fill the mould partway with cider, add a few mulling spices, then chill to set. Repeat as desired. You will get an effect similar to our Engagement Jelly, Golden Mango-Kiwi or Orange Dream-Jiggle jellies.)

5. Demould and enjoy!

When I tasted the mulled apple cider after the steeping process, I could tell it was going to be good. That cardamom in it is absolutely brilliant.  I’m glad I started cooking with it. It really transformed the flavor in our Rose-Cardamom Sago Gula Melaka.  Stay tuned, because we’ve got another amazing creation using cardamom coming up!

This post was supposed to be a double-dessert post celebrating apples. Unfortunately the second part wasn’t ready by the time I needed to get this post out. If it works, we’ll post about it tomorrow.

    I love the look of this. It’s sculptural and so appropriate for a fall dessert. It’s amazing how creative House of Annie has been with the jellies. I’ve missed commenting on a few, but I’m about to rectify that now.



  2. I love apple cider and the colour of this jelly looks so striking!

    That is one interesting jelly!Easy to prepare,but looks stunning,and I am sure tastes just as stunning!:-) I guess getting konyakku in India is a bit difficult,will have to use a substitute.
    P.S. Thank you for sharing!:-)

  4. This looks amazing! Love all those spices too….
