Guava Jello Kanten
Kanten is a Japanese gelatin dessert, traditionally made from agar agar. Gelatin works just fine and the outcome is identical. I was first served this Guava Jello Kanten version at a Hawaiian luau. The addition of the Guava juice went well with the theme of the menu.
1 (6 oz.) box orange jello 4 ( .25oz.) env. unflavored gelatin 1 c. sugar 3 c. boiling water 1 c. cold water 1 (12 oz.) can frozen guava or passion fruit nectar, thawed
In a mixing bowl; combine jello, unflavored gelatin and sugar. Blend well until no lumps remain. Add boiling water and mix well In a separate bowl; combine cold water and guava nectar; stirring to blend well. Stir in gelatin mixture. Mix thoroughly. Transfer into 9x13-inch pan. Refrigerate 3 hours or overnight.
For service: Cut into desired shapes. Serves 10-12.
