Osmanthus Jelly ~贵花糕

I believe everyone have heard of Osmanthus flower. If you have not, just Google it. Nowadays everything can be Google and you will find an answer. Even my youngest knows how to Google a word for its spelling...lol   

Osmanthus flower is the third type of flower i am using to make a dessert. It is a native plant in the warm temperature zone country. The flower is small, yellow in color and it carries a lovely strong and sweet fruity aroma, which is likened apricot and peach. In China it is named Gui Hua (桂花) Chinese used these flowers to make dessert and tea.
