STRAWBERRY JAR-SET JELLIES

pretty in pink these super cute vegan-friendly jar set strawberry jellies are a perfect snack for when you're on-the-go or craving a sweet dessert treat! 

how?

2 cups of water
1 tablespoon of agar agar (china grass)
2 tablespoons of sugar
6 strawberries
an extra strawberry for garnishing
4 small jars

to prepare the jars, wash them thoroughly and then place into a hot over for 10 minutes to sterilise. remove from oven and allow to cool in a dry place.  

bring the water and the agar agar to the boil and reduce to a simmer. cook until the agar agar is completely dissolved. add the sugar and stir until it is completely dissolved. remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. whilst the agar agar solution is heating blitz the strawberries with a bamix/handmixer until they are of liquid consistency. add the strawberry juice into the agar agar solution and stir to combine. transfer to a pouring jug and pour into the prepared jars. this mix filled 4 small jars for me. garnish with strawberry  slices and put the jar lids on before popping them into the fridge to set over night.
