About this recipe: When I was a little girl, I always looked forward to the end of dinner at a Chinese restaurant because I knew what was waiting for me--almond jelly! I was thrilled when I learned to make it at home. You can change the amount of liquid you add (either water or milk) to change the consistency of the jelly.
