Agar Agar is a versatile vegetarian gelling agent used in place of gelatine, which is completely soluble in boiling water. It provides odourless, colourless superior quality gels even at very low concentrations and is in fact the strongest natural gelling agent available.
Agar Agar in Powder form
100ml flavoured liquid (i.e. stock, fruit or vegetable juice)
1gm agar agar
Whisk the powder into the cold liquid & bring to the boil.
Cool to set.
Any variety of finely chopped flavour additives may be added to the gel before setting (chopped herbs etc..)
The addition of a small amount of glycerine (1gm per 100ml of liquid), will give a greater flexibility to the finished gel if it is to be cut for wrapping &/or prevent the gel from dehydrating & cracking if preparing in advance
