Agar Agar Jelly in Eggshell Recipe
By Justina Lee
This agar jelly recipe brings back many nostalgic memories for me. During my time,
it was very fashionable and a must have dessert at every kid's birthday party.
I remember my mother made brightly multicolored agar agar jellies in novelty shapes
of little animals and flowers for my sixth birthday, and my younger brother would
rush to gobble them up as soon as she took the agar agar jellies out from the refrigerator.
In today's dessert recipe, we are not going to use any fancy molds but instead, we
will be using egg shells sinceEaster is just a days away.
Agar agar is actually the Malay name for jelly and it is also known as Kanten (Japanese),
Agal-agal (Ceylon agar) and China grass. It is a gelatinous substance obtained from
red algae or seaweed and can even be set without refrigeration. Agar agar is an easy
to prepare, fuss free food item that can be made in a jiffy. If you have sugar, Agar
agar strips and some attractive colourings, you have a dessert for dinner.

How to make agar jelly in eggshells
This step requires a bit of patience, you need to carefully knock a small opening
on the egg shell and drain its content onto a bowl (you can use the eggs for Simnel
Cake). Wash egg shells and leave to dry well.

Bring 3 cups of water to boil over moderate heat with evaporated milk, sugar, agar
agar and vanilla essence. Stir thoroughly, make sure the Agar agar strips are completely
Place the peach into each egg shell and pour the Agar agar mixture in, up to the
top of egg shell. Allow to cool at room temperature and set. For a refreshing change,
you can also chill them in the refrigerator.
To serve, crack the shell and cut into halves.
