Passion Fruit Konnyaku Jelly Recipe

Craft Passion loves Passion Fruits!!! I am glad that it is the passion fruits season here, something to make my day fresher from the hot and smokey outdoor since months ago.

My friend bought me 2 big bags of passion fruits from the market immediately after the truck from the highland loaded them in. Eating passion fruit fresh from the fruit is great but I made them even more refreshing by turning the fruits into passion fruit konnyaku jelly, way too good to cool off from the heat and nasty haze.

It takes about 15 minutes to prepare and a night of chilling in the fridge. As for serving/storage, you can either use a jelly mold, glasses or microwaveable plastic cup with cover, just make sure that they are safe to handle the heat from the hot jelly liquid.
