Milky Vanilla Bean and Strawberry Jelly - Day 27

This is by far one of my favorite among the rest of the jellies and pudding. I used Madagascar vanilla bean for the milky layer and fresh strawberries for the bottom layer. Who knows that vanilla and strawberry pair so well? The vanilla bean gives and very intense vanilla flavor and the fresh strawberries added a fantastic burst fresh taste to it. This dessert is absolutely divine for hot summer weather.

I made two of these and while snapping some pictures the phone rang and I went to answer it. Disaster strikes! The white boards fell on one of the jelly and just see what happen. I am left with one. Thank God I always make two just in case incident happens just like this one and I will always have a back up. All ends well :)

Ingredients for white layer:

150 ml water
200 ml milk
3/4 tsp agar agar powder
2 tbsp sugar
Half vanilla bean – scrape off the seeds

Strawberry Layer:

150 ml water
1 cup fresh strawberry
2 tbsp sugar – more or less
3/4 tsp agar agar powder

1. Combined the water and agar agar power in a saucepan. Bring it up to a boil very medium heat and continue to cook until agar agar powder dissolved.
2. Add in the milk, sugar and vanilla bean. Continue to cook over low heat until the mixture come up to a slow boil. Turn off the heat.
3. Wet the Jelly Mould. Put about 1 ½ tbsp of mix into the mould. Tilt the mould into and angle. Once it is set, do the same by tilting it to another angles.
4. In the meantime blend the strawberries with the water. Strain it to remove all the seeds.
5. Put the strawberries mixture, sugar and agar agar powder in a small saucepan and bring it up to a boil. Let it boil for 2 minutes.
6. Put the jelly moulds back into upright position and pour in the strawberry mixture. Put it in the fridge to set. Serve cold.

Your jelly looks very pretty. The colours give a sort of elegant feel to it. The flavours remind me of the perfect, complementary combination of strawberries and cream. Delicious!!
