A Man Reaps What He Sows

I seldom make agar agar and can only do simple and easy agar agar like talam agar agar. So this jelly is the furthest I can go. Not that this is complicated, in fact pretty straight forward. I just like the idea of using fruit hull to mould jelly. Love the skin color too!

Dragon fruit Agar Agar


1 dragonfruit
1 tablespoon agar agar powder
50g sugar
200ml milk, low fat UHT
300ml water

220g dragon fruit flesh
1 tablespoon lemon juice


  • Cut the top of dragon fruit horizontally, scoop out flesh carefully and mashed. Keep the hull for later use.

  • Boil milk,water and sugar till sugar dissolves, stir in agar agar powder. Stir and add in dragon fruit flesh and bring to simmer. Leave it to cool for 5-10 minutes.
  • Pour into the hull until full. Chill in the fridge when it is set.
Health note: Dragon fruit has a good source of anti-oxidants which help to prevent the dangers of free radicals which can cause cancer. Dragon fruit is high in vitamin C and also has lots of dietary fiber of almost 1g of fiber per 100g flesh. Dragon fruit also contain B vitamins such as B1 for better carbohydrate metabolism, B2 for cells repair and B3 for reducing bad cholesterol.  There are also minerals in dragon fruit.
One dragon fruit contains approximately 8.8g of calcium, 36.1mg of phosphorus and 0.65 mg of iron.
I am using low fat UHT milk to make this a healthy dessert.

Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food".      Genesis 1:29

This is God's blessing to earth. In spiritual law, the bible also says a man reaps what he sows. We must not be led astray, for we will face natural consequences of the path we chose.

"Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the spirit will reap eternal life".  Galatians 6:7-8
