Green Pea Pudding
NOTE: This dish, also known as Pea Cubes, Pea Jelly Squares and Green Pea Cake, is eaten like a candy with toothpicks or small dessert forks. In China, it is served in the summertime with afternoon tea. VARIATION: In step 3, before returning the mixture to the saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons oil or lard; then pour in the strained pea puree and stir constantly over very low heat to thicken. (Watch out for burning.) Omit the cornstarch paste. Pick up steps 5 and 6.
