Pineapple Jelly

50 comments

As the weather is turning hot here, I made Pineapple Jelly yesterday. It was a very simple recipe, a combination of pineapple, guava juice and agar agar powder. I can assure you that you'll definitely love this fragrant flavour combination. This cool pretty jelly dessert is also good to serve or pack as a gift for friends and family during Chinese New Year as pineapple stands for good luck in Chinese, which literally means 'prosperity comes'. Are you excited as Chinese New Year is only few days away?


Pineapple Jelly


    Ingredients - one 10 inch square cake pan
     (A)
     1 can Pineapple slices in syrup (drain the pineapple slices and keep the syrup)
     9 Red cherries
     350ml Water
     1 tsp Agar agar powder
     60g Sugar
     1 pandan leaf

  • Boil (A) -350g water, sugar, agar agar powder and pandan leaf together at medium heat until sugar dissolved. Continue stirring liquid for another 3 minutes, off heat and stir again for another 2 minutes with a hand whsik. Discard pandan leaf.
  • Pour a little agar agar liquid into the square pan then place 9 pcs of pineapple slices and cherries in pan. Pour the remaining agar agar liquid on it and leave to set.

      (B)
      1 pkt + 1/2 tbsp Agar agar powder
      1 tbsp Gelatine powder
      300g Sugar or add to taste
      550ml Water
      600ml Guava juice
      800ml Liquid from 1 can Pineapple juice +  pineapple syrup + water
      4 pandan leaves




      Method:
  • Soak getaine powder with 2 tbsp of water in a small bowl, set aside.
  • In a large pot, add in the remaining ingredients and bring to boil at medium heat until sugar dissolved. Add in soaked gelatine and stir till melted with a hand whisk.
  • Continue stirring liquid for another 3-5 minutes, off heat and stir again for another 2 minutes. Discard pandan leaves.
  • Divide agar agar liquid into two portions (total about 2000ml). Add a drop of orange colouring into the first portion of liquid and stir well.
  • Gently scrape the surface of the pineapple slices with a knife and slowly pour liquid over over it and leave to set in refrigerator for about 10 minutes or firm to touch.
  • Keep the remaining agar agar liquid under low heat  or place it over a pot of hot water to prevent the liquid set quickly while waiting for the pineapple agar agar to set.
  • Take out the set pineapple agar agar from refrigerator and gently scrape the surface with a knife. Add a drop of rose pink colouring in the remaining agar agar liquid and stir well before pouring over the set agar agar.
  • Cool and chill pineapple jelly to set in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours before removing from the the cake pan.

  4. Hi Ann,
    Love your easy pineapple jelly. May i know what is the purpose of adding gelatine ? Can it replace by agar agar powder? Appreciated!

    1. Hi Jenny, Adding gelatine gives a soft texture to the jelly and agar agar will not easily melts in room temperature. Yes you can use agar agar powder (about 1 3/4 tbsp) without the gelatine. Remember to keep stirring the agar agar liquid for 3-5 minutes to get a firm texture.

  24. Hi Ann,

    This look like pineapple upside down cake to me, it is so pretty.

    I tried using canned pineapple and juice to make agar-agar but I find that it does not set well as compared to other fruits. Did u use more agar-agar powder than usual for this recipe?

    Wishing your family and you Ong Lai in the coming snake year!

    1. Hi Angel,

      Yes, adding a little more agar agar powder makes the jelly firmer and can keep this dessert for a week.

      Happy Lunar New Year to you and your family too! “发啊!!!”
