Homemade Blue Butterfly Pea Jelly

May 12, 2020 2 Comments

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!  :)

Their Humbananacue and Spare Ribs with Banana BBQ Sauce is a must try, the meat is so tender and tasty. And you gotta try their best-sellers too which is the Pork and Chicken Sisag  and the different flavors of Gatchips. What I really love is their Banana Walnut Torte, it's sooo delicious..


If you're fond of DIY, you can try their  "Create your own bananacue", they have a station where you can make your own banana with chocolate fondue in different kind of toppings.

Beef Broccoli in Oyster Sauce

April 20, 2017 0 Comments
I experimented and tried cooking Beef Broccoli in Oyster Sauce for the first time. 

The ingredients that I used are:
  • 1-2 tbsp of Olive Oil
  • Garlic
  • Oyster Sauce
  • Broccoli
  • Beef (sliced thinly)
  • Cornstarch (diluted in water)
So, first, I blanched the broccoli that we bought at the market for around 2-3 minutes, drained some excess water and set it aside. Heated the pan for a while and then I added the beef. After the beef is almost cooked, I started adding the onions and stir it for a while. Then I added the oyster sauce, cornstarch which was diluted in water and lastly the broccoli.


I actually just estimated the ingredients and calculated it on my own, so I can't give the exact amount that I put in the recipe... Hehehe... I'm not really good in cooking unlike my hubby, but anyway, I think it was a success because my little one liked it. ;)

Lachi's Sans Rival Atbp

July 10, 2014 0 Comments
If there's one restaurant that I love and would love to recommend, it's non other than Lachi's Sans Rival Atbp. It's not that expensive and you'll get really satisfied for what you've paid for.

The first time I've tried their food was way back in year 2008 and from that moment, I kept on craving for their dishes and most especially their pastries. I personally loved their Durian Cheesecake and Sans Rival.

Durian Cheesecake


Classic Sans Rival and

Durian Sans Rival

I wouldn't miss those two whenever I'm at Lachi's, al though sometimes the durian cheesecake which is their best seller by the way, is not available or it's all consumed. I guess a lot of people really love it and I am just one of them. ;)

Here are some of Lachi's delectable home-cooked meals:



The Unforgettable Grilled Pork Ribs is one of their best sellers too, it's meat is tender and absolutely delicious. When you've tasted this dish, you would know why it is named Unforgettable Grilled Pork Ribs, because you would never forget it for its flavorful taste.


Have you heard of Pork Marina? I've heard of Seafood Marinara but it's my first time to hear about Pork Marinara at Lachi's. It's a spaghetti with cheese and tomato sauce, topped with crunchy breaded pork strips. It is one of the dishes that I also loved at Lachi's, well I actually love most of their dishes, lol. :)


If you're looking for a healthy meal, the Breaded Soft Tofu with Teriyaki sauce is best for you.


Elsie's melt-in-your-mouth roast pork is also a must try. It's meat is so tender and it is really good, we can't help ourselves from eating it. I'm glad we tried it. If you're up for a spicy dish, I recommend their laing.


Below are just a few of their mouth watering dishes that you should try...

Chinese Pork Belly

Kaldereta

Beef Tapa

Other pastries that you must also check out:

Strawberry and Blueberry Cheesecake

 Cashew Mocha Torte


Creme Brulee

Lachi's Sans Rival Atbp is own by twin brothers Melvin and Mike Aviles.


Lachi's Sans Rival Atbp is located at Ruby St., Marfori Heights Davao City. Most of the time their place is always full so I suggest you call them at 224 5552 and have a reservation. ;)
