Vegan Gelatin

Vegan Gelatin

"I've experimented with these a lot and have finally found a combination that comes out as stiff as gelatin desserts but are completely vegan. Works well as a substitute for gelatin in other recipes or just as treats on it's own. Half of a cup of chilled juice can be replaced with your favorite liquor to make a cocktail."

I use agar-agar as my main gelling agent. A few helpful hints: - When the recipe above doesn't turn out well, raise temperature and simply try again. - The setting temperature for agar is consi...

This recipe works great! The texture isn't quite like gelatin, but the kids don't know the difference. Mine set up within about 1 1/2 hours.
