Taiwanese Aiyu 爱玉 jelly recipe

Got the seed from Taiwan. Aiyu is very simple to make. You just need the seeds, water, sock (used to made coffee) and your hands. Was told to use just tap water because the minerals in the water will activate the pectin released from the seeds.
  • 40g Aiyu seeds
  • 1 litre tap water
Put aiyu seeds in the sock bag, twist the stock and tie it. Put sock into the bowl of water and rubbed it with my hands. You will have soapy's normal, continue another 5 minutes and leave it for 1-2 hrs to settle and harden. 
Make honey juice, lime or lemon juice to serve with the aiyu.
