Power Jelly

The Cantonese people are very health conscious that they use a remarkable number of herbs to help in regulating the body heat. Gwai ling gou (龟苓膏, gui ling gao) is a type of jelly that is said to cool down the body heat, so we went into this specialist shop to have it.




It can be had either hot or cold. I chose the cold one because I needed something refreshing then.




The jelly is basically bitter in taste with the smell of herbs. So, adding some honey helps to make it more easy on the taste bud of those who are afraid of bitterness.




If you don't like honey, adding some fine sugar also helps to ease the bitterness of the jelly.

my first attempt on kwai ling gou was last saturday. i'd always wanted to try it out and finally got the chance to do it last weekend. LOL
i don't really get used to the bitterness though...
