Tosakanori jelly ~Taiwanese style~


Who would have thought that such vibrant colors could come from seaweed? Tosakanori can be used to create simple yet stunning desserts. Here’s how you can make a refreshing citrus jelly with Tosakanori.



  • Tosakanori (before salt removal/before watering) 100g/30g
  • Water 300cc
  • Your favorite citrus juice (grapefruit, orange, lemon recommended)
  • Goji berries (for garnish)
  • Lemon slices (for garnish)

How to:

  1. Salted Tosakanori seaweed should be rinsed twice with water to remove salt. After that, soaked in water for about 3 minutes to remove the excess salt.

  2. For Dried Tosakanori seaweed, soak it in water for 4 minutes to rehydrate.

  3. ※ When soaking in saltwater, make sure to thoroughly rinse off any debris or foreign objects that may have gotten inside. If there are any discolored parts, it's best to remove them.
  4. Place the soaked Tosakanori and water in a pot and heat on low.
  5. Stir continuously for 4-5 minutes until the Tosakanori starts to melt and blend with the water. Ensure it doesn't burn or stick to the bottom of the pot.
  6. Once the Tosakanori is half-melted, remove from heat and let it cool slightly.
  7. Pour the mixture into a serving dish and add an equal amount of citrus juice. Stir well to combine.
  8. Garnish with goji berries and lemon slices. Feel free to add your favorite fruits as well.
  9. Chill in the refrigerator and enjoy!

Tip: Tosakanori provides both color and texture, making it easy to create jelly-like desserts without the need for agar or gelatin. Enjoy a nutritious and visually delightful treat with citrus juices like grapefruit, orange, or lemon.
