Marble Fruit Jelly

Making jelly is one of the easiest, fastest and simplest dessert preparation that I have ever known. You can prepare it beforehand and it takes about half an hour to cook and another 1-2 hours to set. That is why I always have a few packets of dried jelly at home so if I feel like making a sweet jelly, I can just disperse the dried jelly in water and add any flavour that I want. You can use any kinds of jelly. Some will come in a dried version, whereas some in powdered version. Some boxed jelly will have a version of crystal jelly as well but for this one I use dried jelly that you have to melt first before putting any flavour you desire. Besides, I found out that crystal jelly is more suitable to take on its own with its own flavour than adding your own flavour into it, hence the dried jelly would be a better choice. For this marbe jelly, you have to make sure that the first colour you put in is about 3/4 set before adding or mixing another colour of jelly. It’s up to your own creativity of what colour you would prefer, but for mine I chose chocolate and vanilla flavour with a little hint of cinnamon and nutmeg. Do try!

Ingredient A
1 packet of dried jelly
1 cup of sugar
Water
1 can of evaporated milk

Ingredient B ( chocolate colour)
2 table spoon cocoa powder

Ingredients C ( light milky colour)
1 tea spoon cinnamon powder
1 tea spoon nutmeg powder
1 tea spoon vanilla essence

Ingredients D
1 can of canned peaches or any canned fruit products

Methods

Stage 1

1. Wash the dried jelly briefly before putting it in a pot.

2. Cover the pot with water about double the height of the jelly that stays in your pot.

3. Heat the pan and let all the jelly melt. When the jelly is melted, add in sugar. You can cut in or add in more sugar depending on your preference.

4. When the sugar has melted, add in the evaporated milk and cook for another 2 minutes or until it becomes bubbly.

Stage 2

1. When the jelly is cooked and well melted, divide the jelly into two equal portion.

2. Add ingredients B into one portion.

3. Add ingredients C into another portion.

Stage 3

1. Pick any mold of your choice, and begin layering the jelly with ingredient D, that is the canned peaches at the bottom of your mold.

2. Add in the chocolate mixture, ingredient B, for about half of the mold and let it set halfway.

3. When the jelly is half set, arrange some canned peaches on top of it and add in the other mixture of jelly as in ingredient C (lighter colour).

4. Wait for a few minutes, and when the jelly is 3/4 set, mix the jelly briefly until it forms marble designs. Do not mix too much as the colours will mix thorougly hence the marble like design might not be achieved.

5. Set in a room temperature for half an hour before transferring it in your fridge.

6. Cut it into a triangular shape before serving.
