I must admit I love jellies since I was a child. I like the consistency, transparency and the fact that this beautiful dessert is very easy to make.
Today I’m sharing a lovely recipe for a blueberry jelly with agar-agar. In general, agar-agar is a useful plant replacement for gelatin, which is obtained from seaweed. This product contains folic acid, fiber, vitamins K, E, B6, and iodine. It’s also an excellent prebiotic.
The jelly recipe
All you need is agar-agar, a cup of water, 100 ml of freshly squeezed orange juice, 200 grams of frozen blueberries, lemon juice and your favorite sweetener. I used coconut sugar.
Cooking this jelly is simple. You only need to consider the time for the swelling of the powder (20 minutes is enough). And remember the proportion: 1 teaspoon of powder per 200 ml of liquid. For my 300ml of water and juice + liquid from crushed blueberries I used 2 spoons of agar-agar.
I believe that pear is the best compliment to blueberries, so I added it to the jelly. You can add pieces of any other fruits or dried fruits. I’d say that apple, orange or coconut will work great.
