Instructions

  • Combine 1 Tbsp. of agar-agar flakes with 1 cup of orange juice in a saucepan. Note: since a cup is equal to 16 tablespoons, this ratio is 6%.
  • Stir occasionally while it heats gently.
  • Remove from heat after it is left to boil for a couple minutes
  • Connect the syringe to a piece of tubing and pull back on the plunger until the tube is full of the agar solution
  • You may draw a little into the syringe to help remove bubbles from the line
  • With the tubing coiled and the open ends sticking above the water, place the tubing in an ice bath for at least 5 minutes
  • Continue with the other tubing until the solution is gone
  • If you have more solution than tubing, keep the solution on a low flame to keep warm
  • To eject the ‘spaghetti’ from the tubing, pull the plunger all the way out on the syringe before connecting to a piece of agar filled tubing
  • Over a bowl, press on the plunger until the tubing is empty
  • Transfer a small portion to each serving cup
