Spirited Away Duck Spirit Bath Jelly | 千と千尋の神隠しのオオトリ様の温泉ゼリー

The scene in Spirited Away where the duck spirits are taking a bath is my absolute favourite scene in all of Miyazaki’s movies. Just the way that they’re floating up and down in the baths and are so pudgy that the water is spilling over is so adorable. These are made in the same method as my Ponyo Bubble Jelly, but each bird spirit is stuffed with a strawberry. I used a French onion soup bowl to match the bath tubs that they are in in the movie, and the handle actually makes moving it around a lot easier. The sweet green tea jelly pairs so well with the blackberries and mandarin oranges at the bottom, as well as with the strawberries inside the ducks.

Ingredients (makes 1 bath)
❤ strawberries, tops removed
❤250g shiro an paste
❤2 ½ tsp shiratamako
❤ 5 tsp water
❤ yellow, green, orange and black food colouring
❤ blackberries
❤ canned mandarin oranges
❤ 1 green tea bag (+ green food colouring, optional)
❤ 600ml water
❤ 4g powdered agar
❤ 60g sugar

Directions
1. Make the duck spirits. Gradually add the water to the shiratamako, dissolving it and creating a watery white liquid.
2. Then add this liquid to the shiroan paste (which is a sweet, white kidney bean paste) in a small pot, and mix very well with a rubber spatula until the liquid is completely incorporated. Place the pot on the stove, and set it on medium-low heat. Keep kneading the dough with the spatula until most of the water has been absorbed, and it no longer has a shine. It should still have a paste-like consistency and hold together well, but feel and look slightly dryer than before. You don’t want to cook it so long that it begins to brown, and remove it immediately from the heat if you notice it browning. On the other hand, if you do not cook it long enough it will be much too sticky to handle.
3. Once it has reached this stage, remove it from the heat, and spread the paste evenly along the insides of the pot, for it to cool. Spreading it around ½ to 1 cm thick will allow the paste to cool without drying out too much.
4. Once the nerikiri has cooled enough to touch and not burn your hands, scrape it off from the pot with a spatula, and roll it into a ball. If it crumbles and cracks when you are trying to shape it, it has been overcooked, and if it sticks to your hands and is very difficult to shape, it has been undercooked. In both of these instances, I would recommend making a new batch. It should feel like a slightly denser version of Play-Doh.
5. Take a small piece of the nerikiri and use it for the beaks, eyes, leaves and washcloths. Dye the nerikiri for the birds yellow, and divide it into 3-4 pieces, depending on the size of your strawberries and the bowl that you are using. Make orange beaks, white eyes, white square washcloths and 1 or 2 green leaves out of the smaller piece of dough.
6. Flatten the yellow nerikiri into disks, and wrap them around the strawberries. Using plastic wrap to do this will make it much easier! Decorate the duck spirits with their eyes and beaks and place white square washcloths and green leaves on top of some of their heads. Set these aside while you make the jelly.
7. Pour the water into a frying pan and bring to a boil. Place a green tea bag into the water, and steep until it becomes your desired shade of green. You can add some green food colouring if you would like it to be more green. Add and dissolve the agar in the water, and bring the heat down to low and simmer for 3-4 minutes. Then add and dissolve the sugar, and remove from the heat. Allow this mixture to slightly cool.
8. Place the blackberries and canned mandarin oranges into the bottom of the bowl and pour in enough jelly to cover them. Allow this to almost set. Then place the duck spirits inside the bowl, and pour in enough remaining jelly to make it look like they’re bathing. Dip a toothpick into a small amount of black food colouring, and draw on the pupils of the birds. Allow the jelly to finally set, and you’re done!

Spirited Away Duck Spirit Bath Jelly | 千と千尋の神隠しのオオトリ様の温泉ゼリー

みやざきの映画の中で一番好きなシーンは千と千尋の神隠しにオオトリ様がお風呂に入っているのです。お風呂に浮かんでいるように見えて、太すぎて、お湯が あふれるのがとてもかわいいと思います!気泡入りポニョのゼリーと同じように作られて、各トリにいちごが入っています。お風呂に似ているオニオンスープの ボウルを使用して、ハンドル(?)でとても持ちやすいです^_^甘い緑茶のゼリーはボウルに入ったブラックベリーとみかんとオオトリ様入りいちごによく合 うと思います。

材料(1個分)
❤いちご(ヘタを取った)
❤白あん 250g
❤白玉粉 小さじ2.5
❤水 小さじ5
❤黄色、緑色、オレンジ色と黒色の食用色素
❤ブラックベリー
❤みかん(缶)
❤緑茶(+緑色の食用色素、なくてもOK) ティーバッグ1つ
❤水 600ml
❤粉末寒天 4g
❤砂糖 60g

作り方
①まず、オオトリ様を作る。水を白玉粉に少しずつ加え、白玉粉を溶かす。
②白あんと小鍋に入れ、火をかけないでゴムペラでよく混ぜる。火をかけ、中弱火にし、水分がなくなり、ペースト状態になるまでよく練る。焼き色が付かないように注意してね❤
③火を止め、生地を冷めるためにゴムペラで鍋の内側にねりきりを貼り付ける。0.5~1センチの厚さに付けると冷めやすいです❤
④冷めたら、一つにまとめる。
⑤少量でオオトリ様のくちばし、目、葉っぱとタオル(?)を作る。オオトリ様に使うねりきりを黄色に着色し、いちごとボウルのサイズによって、3~4分に分ける。白色の目、オレンジ色のくちばし、白いタオルと緑色の葉っぱ1~2枚を少量のねりきりで作る。
⑥黄色のねりきりを平らにし、いちごに包む。ラップを使うととてもしやすいです! オオトリ様に目、くちばし、タオルと葉っぱを付ける。ゼリーを作りながら、オオトリ様を別にしておく。
⑦水をフライパンに流し入れ、沸騰する。緑茶のティーバッグをお好みの緑色になるまでお湯につける。さらに濃い色にするために緑色の食用色素を少々加える。沸騰したら、粉末寒天を加え、弱火にし、3~4分煮る。砂糖を加え、溶かし、火を止める。粗熱を取る。
⑧ブラックベリーとみかんをボウルに入れ、ひたひたのゼリーを流し入れる。固まらせる。オオトリ様をボウルに入れ、お風呂に入っているように適量のゼリーを流し入れる。爪楊枝を黒色の食用色素につけ、オオトリ様の目に瞳孔を描く。ゼリーをしっかり固まらせると完成です!
