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!
Makes: Around 16 Jellies
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Passive Time: 1 hour
600ml Lychee Syrup (From can of lychees in syrup)
5g Agar Agar Powder
Can of Lychees, Strained
1. Place the lychee syrup and agar agar powder into a saucepan and heat over low/medium heat until agar agar powder as dissolved completely.
2. Pour the mixture into a measuring cup so it’s easier to pour. Place a lychee into the jelly moulds then pour the mixture into jelly moulds to the top.
3. Place the moulds into the fridge for at least 1 hour or until set completely. Take out of the fridge and push the jellies out of the moulds and serve with in a bowl with some leftover lychee syrup and lychees or by itself.
