Cranberries Milky Jellies
I made these earlier for our Christmas eve dinner too. They were easy, quick, and almost hassle-free to make, except when your 16mo toddler kept on coming over to the kitchen and requested for full, undivided attention. Hahaha!
(Makes 24 jellies, depending on the size of your jelly molds)
10g (1/2 packet) agar-agar strips
2 cups water
1/4 cup molasses sugar
1 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup organic dried cranberries
1. Soak agar-agar strips in a bowl of cold water for about 20 minutes to soften. Drain.
2. Scatter dried cranberries into jelly molds. The amount per mold is up to your preference. Set aside.
3. Pour 2 cups of water in a pot. Bring to boil, then add agar-agar strips and molasses sugar. Cook until all strips and sugar dissolve. Lower heat and add evaporated milk. Simmer for about 5 minutes. Don't boil. Set aside to cool slightly for 10 minutes.
4. Scoop the mixture into jelly molds and leave to set in the fridge for at least 6 hours before turning out to serve. Best if you can chill them overnight before serving.
