Although I don’t use gelatin anymore, jelly is something I can still make and enjoy.
What do I use?
I use Japanese agar powder.
Agar is made of algae, and I’ve seen some people write it smells/tastes seaweed.
I’ve only used Japanese products, and they’ve NEVER smelled or tasted seaweed.
The texture is very different from jelly made of gelatin.
It’s less elastic and gummy, and cleaner and lighter, which I prefer personally.
I made my jelly flowers almond-flavored (almond milk and almond extract), and served them in strawberry soup.
Sweet, refreshing, and makes a light yet satisfying dessert.
I’m a sucker for the Target Dollar Spot (or Bullseye’s Playground).
Whenever I go to Target I have to check out the section because I often find the cutest things, often for props.
These adorable strawberry-themed items were only 1 dollar each!
Love the retro-looking colors and designs.
