Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
100g caster sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons agar agar powder
100ml lemon or lime juice, strained

Method

  1. Combine the sugar and agar agar in a saucepan with 100 ml water. Set aside for 15 minutes to allow the agar agar to soften.
  2. Stirring constantly, slowly bring the mixture to a simmer. Stir over medium heat for 10–15 minutes, or until the agar agar has completely dissolved. It should be completely smooth and you should not be able to see any grains.
  3. Cool to room temperature, then whisk in the lemon or lime juice. Pass through a fine strainer, into a container. Cover and set in the fridge for a few hours.
  4. Once set, blitz in a blender on high speed until smooth and glossy, scraping down the side as necessary. Taste the gel and add more lemon or lime juice or sugar if needed. Pour into a clean jar, seal and refrigerate until required. The gel will keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
