Vitamin C Comin' Up
These huge oranges which are bigger than my fist, are incredibly sweet and juicy, perfect for juicing or just eating them wedge by wedge, and just the right size as jelly moulds.
1. slice top off orange, remove flesh and dice the orange segments
2. add hot water to orange-flavored konnyaku powder, stir to dissolve (didn't add any sugar as the packet of konnyaku powder that I used already had glucose added in)
3. pour konnyaku mixture into orange moulds and/or jelly moulds and add the diced orange segments
4. refrigerate until the jelly is set
Four simple steps to getting my daily requirement of Vitamin C and fibre, sure beats popping Vit-C pills!
If you're non-Asian, and wondering what konnyaku is, check out link to wikipedia's site on the end-product of an Asian starchy tuber (konjac), supposedly low in calorie and high in fiber. I must qualify though that using konnyaku powder as I have done above, would hardly support the low in calorie claim!
