How to Make It:
Step 1: Heat 5 grams (1.2 teaspoons) Cape Crystal Agar Agar in 200 milliliters (6.7628 ﬂuid ounces) fresh water until the agar agar is completely melted.
Step 2: Once melted sieve the mixture over another pot. Then add 350 grams (12.35 ounces) of granulated sugar and melt it until the mixture is frothy and stringy.
Step 3: Now add 14 grams (1 tablespoon or 3 teaspoons) of your favorite juice or beverage in a clean and empty container. You may add a bit of food coloring at this step to provide a more vibrant color to the candy.
Step 4: Fill the rest of your container with the agar-agar/sugar mixture. As long as it’s drinkable, and you like it, pretty much any kind of liquid will do.
Step 5: Chill the containers in the fridge until they’ve hardened, then remove them from their molds and cut the block into smaller pieces however you like.
Step 6: To allow the exterior to crystalize, let the pieces sit in an undisturbed area for three to ﬁve days .
