Beet and Apple Jelly

Beets offer many health benefits including detoxification, lowering blood pressure, boosting your energy, decreasing inflammation, preventing cancer, etc. They are a rich source of fiber and antioxidants. I tend to reduce the amount of sugar to the bare minimum, which many people find it “not sweet enough,” so please increase the amount to your liking.

Ingredients:

12 oz (350 g) beets
2 Tbsp lemon juice
4 Tbsp coconut sugar
300 ml water
2 tsp agar-agar powder
1 apple (small), diced
1/2 tsp salt (for apple soaking water)

Instructions:

  1. Steam whole beets until soft (about 45 minutes). (I pressure-cooked for 25 minutes.)
  2. Soak apple pieces in salted water for 5 minutes to prevent oxidation.
  3. When the beets are no longer hot, peel and cut into chunks.
  4. Place cooked beets and water in a blender and blend until smooth.
  5. Transfer the liquid to a sauce pan and add lemon juice and sugar.
  6. Bring to a boil, add agar-agar powder and let it boil for a couple of minutes, stirring constantly.
  7. Transfer the liquid to individual ramekins or glass containers. Place diced apple pieces on top and push them down.
  8. Refrigerate for a few hours or overnight.
  9. Infuse love and serve!

Servings: 5
