A special treat you never knew you needed to try!! I’m sharing another completely original recipe for Candied Li Hing Mui Star Fruit! Star Fruit is a juicy tropical fruit native to Southeast Asia, they have a similar texture and flavor to pear. Li Hing Mui Powder is a popular condiment in Hawaii often sprinkled on fruit, shave ice, gummy candies – think of it as the the Tajin of Hawaii. Li hing mui powder is made from dried salted plums (xi muoi) it tastes sweet & sour with a hint of saltiness. *Watch my short Instagram Recipe Video here
Li Hing Mui Powder will be hard to find locally unless you’re in Hawaii, you can order it here
Use a kitchen thermometer to make sure the sugar syrup reaches 300°F. If it doesn’t reach the proper temp, the candy coating might not set.
