Being the good guest that I am, when I was invited to a friends' house for Thanksgiving, I offered to bring some dish along with me. Being the good hosts that my friends were, they stated that no dish was required, but I could bring something if I wanted to. Being an I.T. person, the obvious choice was alcohol.

Agar agar has been used in many Asian desserts for a while, but with the molecular gastronomy movement, it's just really starting to take off in the United States. If you know what agar agar is, there's not much to say about Roland's version - it's packaged in 3oz packages, each package containing several strands or strips of the agar (they are tied with a nice little red ribbon that you can see in the item image). They are not bleached, not certified organic (but come on, agar is seaweed), and have no listed additives. It's literally just agar agar that's been dehydrated.

Agar agar is a tasteless substance which can replace flavorless gelatin in recipes. The only bad thing about agar is that the conversion of gelatin to agar is a bit tricky. Although in most instances you can do a 1:1 substitution, variables like acids and enzymes can play havoc with the agar. Also it should be noted that agar can set up much stiffer than gelatin if you go overboard with the amount. Imagine the jello becoming more of a gumdrop consistency.

I did not know that some of the people coming to the Thanksgiving dinner were vegetarians, so when I brought out my various jello shots the sad vegetarians told me that they cannot drink/eat them because gelatin is not vegetarian friendly. I told them that these jello shots were made from agar agar, which is a seaweed. Thus the vegetarians were happy and allowed to get drunk with the rest of us meat-eating heathens.

I had no idea how much agar 12 ounces was when I ordered it, but it is a lot! It comes in a 2'x 2'x 6" box and it was completely full. If you need only an average amount, do not order this one. The product it good though. I am happy with it, I just have enough to last me 20 years.

As another reviewer mentioned, this is a LOT of agar! Which is great, because I needed a lot for a 70-person dinner I put on. It did exactly what it was supposed to do, and was so much cheaper than if I had tried to buy it at the store. Even after making dessert for 70 people, I still have a LOT of agar agar left. Which is great!
