Almondy Jelly

I love the smell of almond... which my mum always describe it as the 'cockroach small'.. obviously she hates it.. im the true opp of her.. anythg she dislike.. I love them...

I rem having almond jelly when I was young at a hor fun restaurant in my old home. The smell of the almond floods the whole fridge... alongside with the jellys are of cos longans. A fruit which is never on my favourite list becos its always sweet.... I hardly want to touch longan ..unless its in the almond jelly... becos of the smell of the almond of cos.. and its diluted..not so sweet.

I been searching for almond jelly recipe thats is made from scratch with agar agar powder for months... finaly I stumbled upon rose recipe and decided to giv it a try.. no harm since i got loads of agar agar powder at home. And I can bring it to the pool side to nib while chatting w friends. Kids will like it too...

Oh my.. its real easy... I added extra Amaretto liqueur in the syrup.. Threw in some left over can peach which I used for fruit tarts earlier on to get some colours...
