Jelly Roll-Up

homemade candy


  • 1 envelope of agar-agar powder not gelatin, available at Asian stores or health food store, 7 g
  • 1 c sugar
  • 1 tbsp orange blossom water am just using up my orange blossom water, you can flavor it with any food flavoring you like, a drop or two, a tsp, depending how you like it
  • 6 drops of yellow food coloring liquid (you can use colored agar-agar, I use plain here so I colored it with yellow food coloring. If you are using plain as well, you can color it to whatever color you wish)
  • water see note below


  • In a pot, mix everything, bring to light boil, then turn down heat to low, keep stirring, cook for another 30 minutes
  • Pour into rectangular non stick cookie sheet and let harden in room temperature
  • Once jelly is hardened, run through a knife on each side of the rectangle shape then lift one lightly of a side
  • With either berry sugar (castor/superfine) or icing sugar, sprinkle them generously on the surface, leaving a little on end side so jelly would stick once rolled
  • Roll nicely and slice to serve!
  • They are great at room temperature and super good chilled.


in a measuring cup of 1 C, mix orange blossom water, food coloring, and enough water to the rim
