Aloe Vera Jelly in Honey

If you have an aloe vera plant at home, this makes a refreshing dessert with many health benefits (a simple search on google will turn up many examples).
Cut one big flat leaf off the plant, taking care not to get scratched by the thorns. Remove the thorns and skin, until you see a transparent clear pulp inside. Dice the pulp. Wash thoroughly as the sticky yellowish gel-like substance next to the skin not only has a bitter taste, it is also a mild laxative. Aloe vera pulp is tasteless but has a nice crunchy texture. Add the diced aloe vera cubes into syrup, like honey.
