Telosma Cordata Eucheuma Jelly - The Picnic Game 2013 (1)

I get to know Louise when she commented in my Hot and Spicy Chicken  and Homemade Chili Paste  posts.  Out of curiosity, I visited her blog,  Months of Edible Celebrations and she invited me to play Picnic Game 2013.  This is my first time participating in this Picnic Game.  The rule of the game is each participant is to choose an alphabet and to prepare a dish starting with the chosen alphabet.  Well, I chose the letter T and I am bringing Telosma Cordata Eucheuma Jelly as it's a very healthy dessert. 

Telosma Cordate or Chinese Violet has many benefits which I had mentioned it in my Chinese Violet Omelette post. Besides that, Euchema or Sea Bird's Nest (a type of seaweed) has many benefits too.  I will do another posting on the benefits of Eucheuma soon as I do not want those picnickers to get bored with my grandma's stories!

Well, so I am going on a picnic organised by Louise and other lovely picnickers who have been invited by our sweet lady Louise.  To know more about the game, do please visit her Picnic Game 2013's rules.
I'm going on a picnic and I'm bringing ....
A - Aloo Gobi
B - Blueberry-Cucumber Salsa
C - Crispy Curry Fried Chicken 

E - Eton Mess
M - Ma'moul
Ingredients : (to taste)
- 300gm of soaked Eucheuma (dried Eucheuma has to be rinsed and washed 5 to 6 times.  Then soaked for at least 5 hours.  After that, rinse again for 3 to 4 times.  Then drained)
- a handful of Telosma Cordata (washed and drained)
- some Chinese wolfberries (washed and drained)
- some honeychomb sugar
- 1.5 liter water
Method :
1)  Boil Eucheuma and honeycomb sugar in a pot of water until dissolved. 
2)  Keep stirring.  It takes about 30 to 40 minutes to fully dissolved the seaweed.
3)  Add the Chinese Wolfberries into it and let it cook for another 10 minutes over low heat.  Keep stirring.
4)  Then, add Telosma Cordata into the mixture.
5)  Stir and mix well.  Turn off the heat and let it stand for another 5 minutes.
6)  Transfer the mixture into Jelly moulds or containers.
7)When cold, chill it in the refrigerator overnight.  
8)  Remove it from the mould.
9)  Serve chilled.
It's so refreshing and yummy!
Healthy and Nutritious too :)
Isn't this a very healthy dessert for picnic?
Do give this a try and you will not regret.  Enjoy!
