|The Imperial Navy jello mould! Only geeks will get this.|
Now I'm seriously tempted to try some agar-agar or jello recipes. Been searching online for some simple ones involving coconut cream and espresso since I got easy access to both. And I found this simple enough recipe from Serious Eats on coffee-coconut agar agar.
It turned out better than I expected. Minor problems I had was deciding when to pour the second coffee layer and gauging how much to pour cos you wanna make sure the proportions are right. You also don't wanna pour the second layer too fast and hard otherwise it'll break the first layer, you gotta spread it out gently with a spoon. So watch out for all that if you are doing any double or triple layer agar agar.
Check this out! The coconut coffee combo was great and eating something that came outta a 50 or 60 year-old relic is quite an unforgettable experience.
