Longan Konyaku Jelly


This is our favorites dessert, longan konyaku jelly. I'd tried lychees flavor before, but longan flavor is still the best. 
I used pre-mix konyaku jelly.

Ingredients:  
1 can longan
1 packet of pre-mix konyaku jelly
1000 ml water
250 ml longan syrup
Few drops of red coloring

Method:
Mix 1000ml water with 250 ml longan syrup into a pot.Bring the mixture to boil.
When the mixture boils, stir in the  pre-mix konyaku jelly & red coloring.
Let it boils for another 5 minutes.
Mean while ,place some longan into konyaku  mould.
Pour the mixture into the prepared mould, let it half set, then chill in the fridge till firm.
Serve.
