Jasmine Tea Jelly
Makes 6 Servings
This jelly is softly set and silky. I really enjoy the balance of the slightly bitter tea, lemon, and sweet flavours, which makes it more of a palate refresher than a sweet. Serve it after a meal with oriental flavours. It looks very good served in a small teacup. Jasmine green tea is especially lovely in this dessert.
- 1 Tbsp. gelatin
- 2 Tbsp. water
- 3 cups brewed Jasmine tea, still hot
- 1/2 tsp. liquid sweetener
- 1 Tbsp. Splenda
- 4 tsp. lemon juice
In a small bowl, sprinkle the gelatin over the 2 Tbsp. water. Let stand until softened. Microwave the gelatin in 30-second increments until liquid. Stir into the tea along with the sweetener, Splenda and lemon juice. Pour into 6 small dessert dishes or teacups and let set in the fridge for at least 4 hours.
