  • 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!
