Typically jelly is made from gelatin, which is an animal product. This jelly is made with mineral rich agar sea vegetable flakes, which is a type of seaweed.
1/4 cup agar flakes
2 cups raspberry or apple juice
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/3 cup arrowroot
4 cups fresh or frozen berries
Note: You can choose to leave the maple syrup out, if desired. It is a flavor enhancer.
In a saucepan, mix together the agar and juice with a whisk. Bring to a boil on high heat, whisking the entire time. When the juice starts boiling, lower the heat to medium and continue cooking for 2 to 3 minutes to dissolve the agar.
In a separate bowl, mix the maple syrup (if using) and arrowroot together until well blended. If you opt not to use the maple syrup, mix the arrowroot with 2 tablespoons of water. Add the maple syrup and arrowroot mixture to the agar mixture in the saucepan. Whisk until thick (about 1 minute).
Remove from heat, add the berries, and pour into individual glass or ceramic serving cups.
Refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours to set.
Recipe makes 6 cups.
