I want to make a cherry gel with the consistency of the image iv added which is of a Port fluid gel.
I have got a recipe together and have done my cherry puree ready.
However im not sure exactly sure on how much Agar to add for how i want the gel to be. I have been reading up about the % to use to set the weight of liquids but i found 2 that are giving different quantities from thin to thick of percentage to use. I see that 0.25% for thin to 2.5% thick gel looks most common, if someone could clarify this for me?
This is what i have worked out:
50g Cherry Puree
=75g total weight
i work out the Agar that i need for a thick gel like this 2% off 75 = 1.5g agar
would this be an ok amount for what i would want similar to the picture provided.
Any advice on this would be helpful as its my first time having a go at a fluid gel.
