Pureed Pear Jelly
This is a lovely dessert to have in the fridge that is sugar free and has nourishment from the seaweed.
4 teaspoons agar-agar flakes
1 dessertspoon brown rice syrup
Peel and quarter the pears. Remove the core. Place the pears in a pot with
3 cm of water. Place a tight lid on top and bring to a boil, lower the heat and simmer for 10/ 15 minutes, until the pears are soft. Blend the pears and remaining juices until smooth.
Return the pureed pear to the pot, along with the agar agar, and the brown rice syrup. Simmer over a medium heat for 10 minutes. Pour into individual ramekins or a large bowl and allow to cool. Place in the fridge until set.
Delicious served with natural yoghurt.
Tip; Adding a handful of blueberries at the end of cooking time is delicious.
Agar agar seaweed comes in flake form. It lasts as a gelling agent. It promotes good digestion and also helps carry toxins and radioactive waste from the body. It is high in calcium and iron.
Brown rice syrup is a good quality sweetener. As it is produced from brown rice it has all the B vitamins.
