Experimenting with Agar Agar: Spicy Orange Agar Jelly

No, I don’t like jellies. And no, I didn’t like this one too. But the difference of this jelly is; it has agar agar in it rather than gelatine. Agar agar is a gelatinous “thing” made from seaweed, and commonly used in Japan, Malaysia and Indonesia. I first saw them in Luxirare as jello shots. So just for curiosity, I ordered some agar agar from the internet and tried to make something with it. Well, I’m not going to give the recipe, because I don’t like jellies! Simply, it has some water, brown sugar, cinnamon, star anise, cloves and some black pepper seeds in it. And I also put some diced oranges and clementines, as seen in the photos (The orange things at the bottom!).

At least they look good.. OK, they don’t even look good… But I’m still working on making better tasting jellies!
