[recipes] Homemade Mooncake Part I - Traditional Mooncake vs Snow Skin Mooncakes

Assorted Homemade Mooncakes
Mid-Autumn Festival (中秋节) is just another two weeks from now. This year due to a mooncake project I made some variety of homemade mooncakes ranging from those traditional ones with lotus paste that are wrapped with melon seeds and salted egg to refreshing Jelly Mooncakes that are made using agar agar powder with flavour such as rose and lychee.

Crystal Jade Celebrate 2012 Mid-Autumn Festival with Limited Edition Treasure Box

This year Mid-Autumn Festival, Crystal Jade offers a limited edition Premium Gold Treasure Box (S$88.00 / 4 pieces) which features four individual boxes with lids of silk, each adored with with words "Fei Cui (翡翠)" which means Crystal Jade in Chinese.

The set comprises of:- Gold Leaf White Lotus Paste with Double Yolk, Gold Leaf Red Lotus Paste with Double Yolk, Gold Leaf Plain White Lotus Paste, and Gold Leaf Mixed Nuts and Ham.

Mixed Nuts and Ham is always one of the flavour that I always look forward to. And this one from Crystal Jade has a stronger ham taste compared to the other few that I have tried which is more on the orange peel scented.

For a modern and healthier choice, perhaps you could consider this Kindred Bliss (S$22.00 / 4 pieces) with a selection of four yoghurt and pudding flavoured mooncakes such as Mango (yellow), Mixed Berries (purple), Apple (green) and Original (white).
