Notes on the Grass Jelly (Suong Sao / Thach Den) Recipe, Tips & Tricks

Grass Jelly powder is sold at most Asian grocery stores, usually in the baking section. It’s packaged in small boxes or packets. Some packages contain a sugar packet and a small tube of banamãng cầu essence. The banana essence can be a bit svào, but if you enjoy it, add during the last minute of cooking.

Adjust the sugar to lớn your taste. I use 1/3 cup sugar which is plenty sweet for me. Use 1/4 cup sugar for a lighter taste và 2/3 cup sugar for a sweeter jelly.

I use a little less water than the package instructions and the jelly is medium firm. If you’d lượt thích a softer jelly, add một nửa cup more water. Use 3 50% cups water for a firmer jelly.

Some key success factors lớn keep in mind when making Grass Jelly:

1) Bloom the jelly by letting it rest for 10 minutes after mixing with water. 2) During cooking, stir well including scraping the bottom of the pan khổng lồ dissolve sầu the powder. The powder has a tendency to lớn settle on the bottom and if left undissolved will make the jelly lumpy. 3) Whisk out the lumps during cooking. The mixture will get lumpy. Keep mixing and it will become smooth again. 4) Bring the Grass Jelly mixture khổng lồ a gentle boil khổng lồ activate the gelling properties. The mixture does not need to lớn boil for long or vigorously.
