Nutmeg Assam Boey Mocktail

Posted by Cokeworld Citizen | 4:37 PM | , , | 8 comments »

Recently I have been ordering nutmeg juice from a juice vendor at Gurney Plaza. I got hooked on the drink during a food fair done by Durianberry's church (izzit?) Nutmeg from Penang and no other place but Penang. RM3.80 per cup...Expensive I would say cuz I can get 5 nutmeg for RM1 XD

Saw a bunch of these in the market opp. my flat. Wahahaha fresh. With RM4 I can get 20 biji : P compare to the mall fruit juice vendor, she only uses 2 for each cup.

Halve it and you get this. The fruit is hard so becareful when cutting it. Discard the seed. Erm actually, if you want, the seed can be sundried and blend into powder. That's where nutmeg powder comes from. Can use the powder in cooking seafood curry. Yummz...

Cut the fruit into cubes and blend it with some water. After that sieve the paste for juice and discard the pulps.

You can use a juicer for this but i think your juicer spoils faster and the "siap siap" will taste a bit more intensified. Your call.

After sieving, you get this glass of juice. Unique flavour, a tiny bit "siap siap" (rubbery taste) and sour. Erm...very sour >,<

This is where the assam powder kicks in ;)

RM1 per packet. Initially I forgot to get this but luckily I live in Penang, its easily available in fruit stalls . In my case, I got it from rojak stall. RM1 for a huge packet. This is assam powder premixed with fine caster sugar.

Mix both the juice and assam+sugar premix, its ready to be served. Since its super sour (not anymore after mix with assam premix), I assume its vitamin C packed : )

Why I call it mocktail? lolz...



Happy sipping~

    aiks tot i reply ady....aiyahhh sori sori. They taste milder than the pickled ones and sour and has a bit rubbery taste. But with assam powder (with sugar one) it becomes my favourite drink.
