Favorite Childhood Cold Dessert (minus the sugar!)

Happy Sunday everyone! It’s been blazing hot here in SoCal for the past 2-3 days! PHEW! When the days are hot, it’s hard to stay active. I myself had hard time completing my workout this morning but I pushed thru and glad I did.

After I got home, believe me it was hard to just move around. I think I’ve been sitting in front of my computer for almost half of the day doing some stuff. But I was still quite productive. Got food preparation done and ready.

Anyway, it was so hot today that suddenly I wanted to eat something cold.

A bowl of cold chicken broth to the rescue!

This actually tasted really good! Since we didn’t put much seasonings in the broth, the taste was pretty neutral. I enjoyed eating this cold chicken broth – it was just like eating agar-agar/pudding (minus the sugar!) and it’s natural gelatin! Now that I mentioned it, when I was little, I LOVED eating agar-agar pudding, especially in a hot weather. Of course there was sugar in there but I always made it to be less sweet.

This cold chicken broth totally reminds me of that agar-agar pudding that I used to love.

What was your childhood favorite cold dessert?

    Looks fancy! πŸ˜€ My dad sometimes made eel (he’d caught himself) in jelly, with onions. It had to sit in the fridge overnight. I never really got used to it, especially the jelly. πŸ˜›

    My favorite childhood cold dessert was berry compote (traditional northern German dessert). It’s also served as a main dish with milky rice. In fact, we didn’t eat cold desserts a lot. On holidays, there sometimes was ice cream, and otherwise fruit salad, but more often we ate warm deserts, such as vanilla pudding. Actually, it often happened that we had a sweet main dish (pancakes or semolina pudding or milky rice or maccaroni with a sweet sauce from dried fruit) and then no dessert.

      Cold eel as jelly? Hmm..interesting! That berry compote sounds very yummy. Germany is a cold country so it’s not unusual that you don’t eat much cold desserts, mostly stews/soup πŸ™‚
