This recipe is an ode to one of my favorite places – Japan. Has anyone ever visited or lived in Japan? The fruit there is off the chain and one of my favorites is the momo or white peach. Somehow all the fruit in Japan taste exceptionally sweet and look picture perfect.
When I was crafting this recipe it reminded me of the jelly I used to buy at the Japanese grocery stores. It was so different from the Dole peach cups my mom used to get for us. They were able to keep the peaches firm and you can really taste the sweetness of the peach, as opposed to tasting sugar water with a limp peach in it. Living in Japan really opened up my taste buds to what fruit should taste like.
I wanted to take this jelly cup up a notch and after many many trials and errors I finally got the balance of sweetness and firmness I wanted from a Rose´jelly.

These are not only beautiful, but so simple to make! I’ve never cooked with cassava sweetener before though. Can you substitute it for something like maple syrup?
yes you can!! It might affect the color that’s why I used cassava. It’s clear.
these look too cute for words and I really like that you used peaches which is perfect for the summer months with all the juicy sweet peaches that are in season.
I can’t wait to make this for a small dinner party I’m hosting this weekend! Can I use regular-bad-for-you-white-sugar instead of the cassava? Asking for a friend. 😉
haha. of course you can friend. wink. wink.
