Valentines Day is approaching soon. Instead of buying an expensive gift to Mr C, I decided to make him a jelly heart as a treat! I bought the jelly mixture from a Chinese supermarket. It is called agar agar and is slightly firmer than other jellies which is good with moulding and cutting. I also bought a pack of heart shaped cookie cutters.
Here’s how I made these:
Empty the red powder mixture into the pan with water and stir until it boils. Pour the mixture into the heart shaped mould and set it aside. After one hour remove them from the mould and place them on the plate. Next boil another batch of different colour mixtures and pour it into a shallow glass dish. Let it set for an hour before cutting the jelly out using the mould.
