i stopped by an asian market last night and i bought some agar agar. i was wondering how much agar agar to use in place of gelatin and is there any draw backs to agar agar.
Hi, I was wondering how it went for you. I just tried making marshmallows myself, and also felt that maybe using agar spoon for spoon instead of gelatin may have been much, or maybe I should have dissolved it completely in warm water first instead of cold like recipe says, I am curious on your take, also because I use xylitol so it cost too much to be experimenting on. Thanks.Hi MB
I want to use the powder in marshmallow. Have you used it in marshmallow?
The recipes I have call for 4 tbsp powdered gelatine. Would I substitute the same amount of Agar Agar? I wondered if I would use less as it sets more firmly than gelatine?
This is my first use of Agar Agar and want to make marshmallows for christmas but want to practice now to get them right (from what I've read about AgAg it's going to be interesting getting this right!!).
Being vegetarian marshmallow all seems to be made the traditional way with gelatine so can't wait to try this - bliss in hot chocolate this winter!!!
Thanks for your help.
