I tried the Taiwanese sweet "Ogyochi Jelly" for sale at KALDI Coffee Farm. Written in kanji, it is "Aitamako". The refreshing sweetness of lemon syrup is perfect for the smooth and smooth texture. It is a fun dish if you put the wolfberry fruit in various colors.
Aitamako is a member of the fig family native to Taiwan, and the jelly material is obtained from the fruits. The origin of the cute name is that the person who discovered it named it after his daughter named "Aitama".
KALDI's ogyochi jelly is priced at 198 yen (tax included, same below). The packages lined up in the store are surprisingly large, with a content of 240g (8.47oz), but only 68 calories. It comes with lemon syrup as well as jelly.
This time, as a topping, I also bought dried goji berries, which are familiar to Asian sweets. The price is 291 yen. First, put the jelly in the refrigerator and put the wolfberry fruit back in the water.
Return the wolfberry fruit
Cut the wolfberry fruit with scissors and put it in water for 20 minutes. At first, it is hard and dry like raisins, but if you scoop it up with a spoon and soak it in a cup filled with water for a while, it will swell up.
It is 1.2 times larger and the surface is glossy. The scarlet fruit color also stands out. The wolfberry fruit itself does not have a very strong flavor, so enjoy this color and texture.
Transfer the jelly to a bowl
Aiyu jelly is separate from lemon syrup.
First, cut the jelly seal with scissors and put it in a bowl. It's quite a volume, so it's a good idea to prepare a bowl that is about the size of a bowl.
The jelly as a lump is powerful, but it is difficult to eat as it is, so cut it into bite-sized pieces with a spoon. Open the syrup and pour it into it, and you're done.
It's a very simple preparation. However, if you add the wolfberry fruit that was returned earlier, it will look more vivid. I will see the taste immediately.
The jelly has a smooth texture and a smooth texture. Although it is elastic and has a very smooth mouthfeel and a slight sweetness, it has almost no scent. Therefore, only the refreshing citrus scent of the syrup stands out, and the sourness of the lemon is also strongly felt. The cheep-cheep texture of wolfberry is an accent, and you can eat it without getting tired.
You can also enjoy adding herbs such as mint, fresh fruits and canned fruits if you like. If you divide it into smaller bowls and serve it, it will be enough for 4 to 5 people, so it is worth arranging in various ways.
Aiyu jelly that you can easily enjoy the taste of Taiwanese cafe at home. If you like jelly and Asian sweets, you can buy it without any loss.
