Acorn jelly, called “DoToRi” in Korean, is a popular Korean ingredient. As the name implies, it is a jelly made with acorn starch. It is a firm jelly, very similar to gelatin, but does not contain any animal products, which makes it good for vegetarians. Acorn jelly itself is a little nutty and bitter, so it is best to eat this with something else, rather than by itself. There are several very delicious Korean dishes using acorn jelly. I will introduce them one by one in the future. People believe that acorn jelly is a good diet food since it is low in calories. It is easy to find in Korea, so most people buy it from a grocery store, or when eating an acorn jelly dish in a restaurant. However, the only thing I can find in America is acorn starch. It is nice to share this homemade acorn jelly recipe with others who, like me, cannot buy pre-made acorn jelly. Try it someday.
