Also known as Agar Agar or kanten, Agar powder is an off-white, gelatinous substance extracted from Gelidium sesquipedale seaweed that is dried and powdered. Agar powder is used as a vegetarian gelatin substitute and is non-GMO.
Ingredients: Dried ground extract of gelidium seaweed.
Directions: Soften 1 teaspoon agar in 1 tablespoon cold water, and then add 1 cup boiling water. Dissolve completely and pour jelly into mold. Agar sets at approximately 35 – 37˚C, and can only be re-melted by heating to boiling temperature. Keep in mind agar can be weakened by prolonged heating. Agar is also stable when thawed from frozen. Use in fruit pies, jellies, jams, and soups.
