One of my weaknesses (amongst many) is my tendency to accumulate things in the kitchen. When I spot sale items in the supermarket, whether a can of pumpkin puree or a bag of flour, I just could not help myself and imagine various ways to use them in my cooking. Yet, once I brought it home, my fickle interest wandered off, leaving the lonely package in the pantry.
So there I have a few packets of flavorless gelatin and a bag of instant black sesame dessert (bought at an Asian supermarket). Not wanting to waste them, I decided to combine both to create a black sesame jello! Really easy and fast to make. No baking involved. For a touch of color and a shot of nutrition, I sandwiched the ebon jello with sliced strawberries. Black and red complement each other quite well. And oh, how the jello wiggles! 🙂
