Apple Ginger Kanten

Designed by Wieke Nelissen


August 25

You need for 8 cubes:

½ litre fresh apple-juice
2 tablespoons kanten fl akes (agar agar)
a few grains of sea salt
½ tablespoon fresh ginger-juice



Bring the apple-juice with the salt to a boil, add the kanten and simmer until the kanten is completely dissolved, in 8 minutes. Add the ginger-juice and cool down the dessert in a shallow bowl. Cut 8 cubes. The kanten should be very firm to avoid the risk that it will liquefy in your lunch box.
