It almost seems surreal to me that the last time I published a post on my blog has been more than a year ago. Wow, time really does fly. So what has happened in the meantime… to make a long story short – I moved from Berlin to Taipei and here I am, eating my way through night market food and experimenting with local ingredients in the kitchen.
The other day when I was rummaging through my fridge, I found a bottle of SunnyHills pineapple juice that my sister left, when she and her husband last came to visit me. SunnyHills is actually a Taiwanese bakery that is mainly known for its pineapple cake 鳳梨酥 (fengli su | Taiwanese: ong lai so). Additionally to the cake they also sell juice produced from locally grown pineapple.
After discovering the bottle of 100% pineapple juice, a recent conversation about candy containing high-fructose corn syrup popped into my mind. Therefore, I decided to give making gummy candies from pure fruit juice a try. And they actually turned out very well. The pineapple gummy candy is not too sweet, has a bit of tartness to it and is chewy. Even though these gummy candies are really tasty and flavorful, they are actually quite healthy.
You might want to store these in the fridge since they are made from fruit juice. However, I doubt that there will be any left-overs. 😉
