I grew up eating Agar Agar jelly as a kid, and would always see it featured in some form or another at potluck gatherings with friends and family. Sometimes it’d be flavoured but most of the time it’s jelly with some fresh fruit inside. These agar agar jellies have a bit more bite to it, and it’s why you can use jelly moulds to make these because they should come out of the moulds with ease and still hold its shape. You can also use agar agar powder as a vegan substitute for gelatin so there’s actually plenty of uses for it!

Recipe Notes

  • Instead of Lychee syrup, you can just use 600ml of water and add around 80g caster sugar.
  • Adding more liquid would make the jellies more wobbly, but I'd recommend not using a jelly mould if you were going to use less powder or add more liquid as the jellies may not come out of the moulds.
