Recipe Directions

1. In a medium deep pan (saucepan), place water and pour agar powder in it.

2. Place the pan on the stove and heat it low, stirring continuously for about 5 minutes until dissolved completely.

3. Set aside and let it cool down a bit, but not to set. Let it cool down enough so it won’t cook the fruit when pouring into it.

4. Add maple or agave syrup to the mixture. Stir until dissolved.

5. In a springform or round deep glass baking form (see my picture) of about 8 inches, place fruit on the bottom. First, a banana layer cut in pieces, then a second layer of mandarin, and lastly a layer of pear cut in pieces.

6. Pour lemon or lime juice over fruit. This will prevent it from turning brown (oxidating).

7. Pour the agar mixture in the form. Agar mixture will set at room temperature, but I do like to put the mixture in the fridge to speed the setting process up, and because it contains peeled fresh fruit.

8. Allow to set for about 2 hours. If not set, then allow it to set a bit longer. Do not put in the freezer for setting. Once set, it will not melt at room temperature like gelatin.

9. If you would like to remove the jello from the pan in one piece, with a very thin and sharp knife, loosen the sides of the jello from the pan. Place a flat big enough plate on top of the form. Flip it and the jello should come out. If not, shake a bit the form on top of the plate until loose. Remove the form and the jello should be on the plate.

Jirizarry's Thoughts

By jirizarry

This is a vegan version of gelatin using agar powder. The agar needs to be heated in low for at least 5 minutes, after soaking in cold water for about 10 minutes.

The only thing heated is the agar. So I guess it cannot be said it is 100% raw.

We eat it as breakfast today after having a fresh squeezed ruby grapefruit.

Note: if using agar flakes and not the powder form, you would need more flakes.

1 teaspoon powder = 1 1/2 tablespoons flakes. For this recipe, that would be 3 teaspoons powder = 4.5 tablespoons flakes.
