Add 300 ml of water, powdered kanten and sugar in a heat resistant bowl and mix. Cover with cling film and microwave for 4-5 minutes. When cooled slightly, add lemon juice.
Line small containers with cling film, drop the cut kiwi and cherries (stem removed) inside. (Make sure to cut cling film to be big enough to wrap the filling.)
Pour the kanten mixture from Step 1 into Step 2, twist to close the top and secure with rubber bands. Drop in a bowl of cold water, and take out of the bowl when they are set.
You can leave the rubber bands as they are, but they look cuter if you remove the rubber bands and replace with a twist tops like the ones in the profile photo.
User "Kohanemi" said that if you freeze it to take in your bento lunch box, it will be nicely defrosted by lunch time and is also delicious. Such a good idea!
Story Behind this Recipe
My family loves this. Why not go out with this lovely dessert that makes everybody happy!
When you drop them in water, the bottom will be set in a round shape and they'll look cute. I make this for my daughter's bento lunch box sometimes, not necessarily on special occasions, and she said her friends around her exclaim when they see it.
