Peas Cake

Fruits, Desserts, and Other Sweet Foods

Peas Cake
Ingredients:
2 pounds fresh peas, crushed
1/4 pound sugar
2 Tablespoons ground agar agar or gelatin
2 teaspoons osmanthus flower syrup
Preparation:
1. Steam peas until thoroughly cooked and softened (about half an hour), then grind them and force through a fine strainer or a sieve. Discard any solids left in the strainer.
2. Soak agar agar (or gelatin) in eight to sixteen tablespoons of tepid water until thoroughly swollen, about fifteen minutes. Then bring this mixture to the boil and stir just until it all liquifies.
3. Mix pea paste, sugar, and syrup and add to the gelatin mixture and stir well. Then pour into a shallow bowl and allow to cool. When set, cut into six or eight serving size pieces.
