Peach, Honey and Ginger Jelly

A friend of mine gave me some peaches from the peach tree in her yard. A lot of people have apple trees in their yard around here, but I had never heard of anyone having a peach tree! These peaches are tiny and cute compared to commercial peaches but are very sweet. I had been wanting to make peach jelly, so it was a perfect timing!

I used agar-agar, which is vegan and is made of seaweed, but you can also use 1 tablespoon of gelatin (Please follow the instructions on the package).

According to Eastern Medicine, peaches aid digestive system functions, stimulate blood circulation, and detox your body. They are also a rich source of water soluble fiber, pectin, which can aid lowering your cholesterol.

A combination of honey and ginger alleviates cold/flu symptoms, prevents cancer, aids digestion, and lowers blood pressure. Yes, honey elevates your blood sugar levels, but using a small quantity of high quality honey from a reliable beekeeper is beneficial for your health.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 tsp agar-agar powder
3 – 4 Tbsp honey or other sweetener
1 tsp ginger juice (grate ginger (about 2 inches long) and squeeze)
1 cup peach slices
1/4 cup blueberries

Instructions:

  1. Place 500 ml of water and agar-agar in a sauce pan and bring to boil.
  2. Whisk for 2 minutes to dissolve agar-agar. If you use agar-agar flakes rather than a powder form, you might need to simmer longer (10 – 15 minutes) to dissolve it. Turn off the heat.
  3. Add honey and ginger juice and whisk to dissolve them. Let it cool for a few minutes.
  4. In the meantime, peel and slice peaches. Wash blueberries and dry them.
  5. Pour the liquid into individual cups.
  6. Add peach slices and blueberries to each cup. Save some for topping.
  7. When the jelly is cool enough, place the cups in the refrigerator until fully set, for a couple of hours or longer.
  8. Place additional fruits on top, infuse love and serve!

Servings: 4
