Have you tried my mandarin orange agar-agar jelly recipe? It’s made with only 3 ingredients — coconut water, agar-agar powder, and mandarin orange. It looks beautiful and fancy, but it’s really easy to make. Let’s get started!
Mandarin Orange Agar-Agar Jelly
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes
Rest time: 45 minutes
3 cups (710 ml) coconut water
1 tablespoon agar-agar powder
3 medium mandarin oranges, peeled
- Place the mandarin oranges in the molds.
- In a small pot, pour in the coconut water. Then add the agar-agar powder. Whisk until everything is dissolved.
- Place the pot over high heat, stirring constantly, and bring it to a boil. Turn to medium heat, continue to stir constantly, and simmer for 2 minutes.
- Pour the liquid into each mold. Set under room temperature for about 45 minutes.
- To unmold, lightly squeeze, and flip it on a flat surface. Do the same with the rest.
- Serve directly or chill in the fridge before serving.
- I got the heatproof silicone molds from Amazon. Each one holds about 1 ½ cups or 355 millimeters. You could also replace them with bowls or cups.
- Agar-agar is made from seaweed, and processed into powders. It’s similar to gelatin, but the texture is firmer. It’s available in most Asian grocery stores and on Amazon
- The ratio is 1 teaspoon of agar-agar powder to 1 US measurement cup, which is about 236.6 millimeters.
