Off topic from baking, I made some osmanthus and wolfberry (aka goji berry) jelly today. I've gotten the ingredients a while ago but just never had the chance to make it.
I first tried this when I was in HK last year, at Tim Ho Wan for yum cha. I didn't know what it was but it was nice, not too sweet.
I hadn't thought much about it since then until my friend S decided to make some a few months ago after she had watched a TVB drama featuring it. (:P @ S).
So here's my attempt at it.
Osmanthus and wolfberry jelly
Makes about 38 small jellies
240g powdered konnyaku jelly (pre-sweetened)
~20g dried wolfberry/goji berry
~5g dried sweet scented osmanthus flowers
Slowly add konnyaku jelly, stirring gradually.
Allow to completely dissolve in about 3 mins.
Add in wolfberries and osmanthus flowers.
Remove from heat.
Pour/spoon into jelly moulds.
I bought these moulds in KL 1-2 years ago. I got about 6 in pack.
Allow to cool. Refrigerate until set.
Carefully remove from moulds.
There we go! Very simple and easy to make.
I think next time, I will try and find unsweetened konnyaku and add honey instead. The packaging didn't really say anything about it being sweetened, and most of it was written in Indonesian/Malaysian. :(
