they are actually silicone moulds which I got from Tangs at Vivo City. I was there last weekend for the cooking demo. We had time to shop and the supplier got me a special staff discount..so I just grab!

it can be use for baking in the oven. but I am using it to make jelly

Gina, while waiting for the 10 mins, do we need to keep boiling the 2nd portion? Afraid it might harden if its not hot/warm.

just keep it warm..if its warmed, it stays liquid. If its cooled, it turns hard.What I do is to pour it into a cup and put the cup in a bowl of hot water..over time the water will turn cool..but you can alway refill with warm water.

Hi Gina,

the kiwi seeds - did you buy them or did you just scoop the seeds off the fruit? If you bought them already seeded, what can I substitute these seeds with, don't think I can buy these kiwi seeds here and they do make the agar agar look very pretty.

hoi yean

its sold in packets. Phoon Huat has it. 1 packet can last many agar agar sessions! Smile each time you will only need 1 tsp and it has to be soak in water.

Sounds like it is dyhadrated and needs to be rehydrated to be used so does it mean it can be kept for a long time?

I've tried the orange agar agar but can you please tell me why is the upper and bottom portion of the agar-agar separate when it is set. Could it be after i pour the orange liquid i waited too long to pour the second layer?
Thanks.

yes, you should wait too long to pour the 2nd layer. tap on the bottom layer to make sure its not liquid, a bit formed but not hard, then pour the 2nd layer. Also to take care not to pour from a high angle, rest the container on the edge of the mould, slowly tilt the 2nd layer liquid to let it flow down.

then leave it to set in the fridge. To do 2 layers, to me, its such a big feat. I can't imagine when my aunt use to make those many layers of different colours of jelly. see stars its more patience you need than anything else! Smile

hi Bella

yes you can. But coconut milk tends to go bad very fast. So make sure you consume the jelly within 3 days.

my girls don't like coconut milk in jelly. This is why I never use it.
