In a small pot, whisk together your water and agar agar powder well. Then bring it to a boil. Quickly reduce it to medium heat, and allow this to simmer for 1 minute and no more than that. The timing needs to be exact or the jelly will be too hard. Do not cover your pot.
Allow your pot of liquid jelly to cool in sink filled with cold water or 5 minutes. But no more than that, or it'll solidify and you will need to reboil it again.
Place your strawberry in the center of the mold or cup.
Pour your liquid jelly over top. Allow this to rest for 5 minutes.
Transfer to the fridge and allow this to chill overnight or at least 3-4 hours.
Serve with maple syrup and enjoy!
