    I had a very similar glob of perfectly clear jelly like stuff on the very end of a piece of moss. Just cut it off and I havent seen it since.

    Never heard of "grass jelly" before. What are the ingredients? Is it normally consumed as cubes as is shown on the can?

    Grass jelly is made from Mesona chinensis, a type of plant. It's believed to have some effect on lowering the "fire" in your body.

    Grass jelly is consumed differently depending on which country you're in. It can be enjoyed by itself, as a base eaten other with yummy things, or added as a side with other desserts. Depending on the season you'll find it in cold and hot form.

    This is the most common form of grass jelly, in cubes and eaten with sugar water. I personally hate eating it alone


    I'd rather have it with shaved ice and other type of desserts during summer.


    Or in the winter, same concept except the grass jelly is heated. It then melts together and can also be paired with other ingredients shown in the shaved ice picture.

    nah, this type of shaved ice is from Taiwan, so different ingredient but same concept. There's also shaved snow ice as well.

    Looks delicious and interesting. My Dad was the only one in my family that ate grass jelly. Sometimes he'd put a little maple syrup on it, but mostly he ate it pretty straight out of the can. I suppose I should try it, never did. The name doesn't help. Chinese Gooseberry wouldn't sell in the US until it was called "Kiwifruit".
