BFC Recipes: Fruit Jello, Vegetarian Style PDF Print E-mail

FRUIT JELLO, VEGETARIAN STYLE

Believe it or not, the sea provides a substance called agar that makes a jello-like product without all the sugar and artificial colors and flavors, and it is very easy to make! It is sold in the bulk department in the spice section of the Co-op. It is cool and refreshing! It can be served to kids and seniors, whom I often find can be a challenge to keep hydrated
during the hot months of the summer. Fruit jello was a favorite of my daughters growing up. The recipe follows:

2 cups juice, either full strength or slightly diluted
1 ½ tsp. agar powder, found in the bulk spice section, or use agar flakes found in the Asian food section

Put juice in a small saucepan. Sprinkle agar over juice in the saucepan, let stand for a few minutes, then bring to a simmer and cook until the agar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Pour into small serving dishes or a serving bowl and chill until it sets. Serves 4. Keep in mind that this vegetarian jello does not hold as long as regular jello so it should be eaten within 24 hours before it begins to weep and loses it gel formation!
