In a small pan, like a milk pan, add 200 ml water and 4 tablespoons sugar and put on the heat. Dissolve the sugar.
Once the sugar has dissolved, stop the heat, add in the gelatin mixture and mix well until completely dissolved.
Once cooled, add the milk and almond extract to the mixture from Step 3.
Add the mixture to whatever serving dishes you wish to use and chill in the fridge.
Next, prepare the star anise syrup. Add the ingredients marked with ● to a pan and put on medium heat. Remove from heat once boiled.
When the mixture from Step 5 has set, pour the syrup over and top with whatever you like to finish.
Story Behind this Recipe
I really recommend almond jelly made with almond powder, I love the texture. This time I challenged myself to make almond jelly with almond extract instead. It came out really smooth and my friends are always asking me to teach them this gem of a recipe.
Use 3 tablespoons water to dissolve the gelatin. -10 g of gelatin will give you quite a runny jelly. If you want it firmer, please add a little more gelatin powder. I used the A-U brand gelatin. -It also looks nice if you pour the mixture into a large container and then scoop it out into smaller ones.
