Homemade Blue Butterfly Pea Jelly


We have a few Blue Butterfly Pea plants (also known as Blue Ternate or Clitoria Ternatea) on our front yard and every day it blooms. We have a lot of flowers daily, so we make use of it by making blue ternate tea or juice.

We did an experiment and made a Homemade Blue Butterfly Pea Jelly. It is just so easy to make and here are the ingredients that we used:
  • Blue Butterfly Pea/Blue Ternate flowers
  • 1 sachet White Gulaman or Jelly powder (Unflavored) (15g)
  • 1 pouch All-purpose cream
  • 1 can condense milk
  • 1 can kremdensada (it's an all-purpose cream and condense milk in one)
  • Sugar (white)
The first thing that I did is to wash the Blue Ternate flowers before boiling it for around 5-10 minutes or if the water turns dark blue. After boiling them, you can now sift and press the flowers to have its extracts.

In another pot or casserole, put 7 cups of water and sprinkle the jelly powder mix and sugar while stirring constantly. Heat until near boil with continuous stirring to dissolve the powder completely. Slowly add the blue ternate flower extract and stir well. Let it boil before turning off the flame. 

Let the jelly mixture set for a while before putting it in a molder or any container. After that, you can put it in the refrigerator and let it set. Once it is fully set, you can cut it into cubes or any shape you want.

For the milk mixture, I just mixed the all-purpose cream, condensed milk and kremdensada in a large bowl and added the blue ternate jelly in it. Below is a photo of the blue ternate jelly mixture, once you're done, you can put it in the refrigerator and let it chill for a while before eating.


Here's the finished product of our Homemade Blue Butterfly Pea Jelly... It's delicious and so easy to make!  :)
