After making the dragonfuit konnyaku jelly last month, i still have half a packet of the konnyaku jelly powder left. This time i actually think of a colour first then decided what to to put in as filling. Purple or red is the colour that i wanted. Strawberry, grapes , watermelon have all crossed my mind..i thought watermelon would be nice but then how about the seeds..no. Earlier somebody suggested kiwi fruit on my dragonfruit jelly post which i think it's beautiful with the green colour and refreshing too. Red dragonfruit would be nice too but since i've made dragonfruit earlier, i thought of using another fruit. Then i thought of purple sweet potatoes. Do you think it's a bit weird to use sweet potatoes in jelly? I just went ahead and tried that. I love the natural colour from the purple sweet potatoes and if you think it's really weird, it's not. Ok, you can almost imagine the texture of the sweet potatoes but to go with this jelly, i dont find it unpleasant at all. If you are still curious about the taste of these jellies, try making it and you will know..
I used about 2 small medium size purple sweet pototoes here, steam and mash them till fine and lastly shape them into balls. Jelly making as per instructions in the packet.
