Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 4

1 1/4 Cup(s) Boiling water
1/2 Cup(s) Agar-agar, cut in pieces
1 Cup(s) Evaporated milk
1/3 Cup(s) Sugar
1 Tablespoon(s) Almond extract
2 Cup(s) Hot water
1 Cup(s) Mandarin oranges
A light, sweet, gelatinous pudding of very delicate texture, totally
unlike a typical gelatin dessert - Jello it is not. Have large cooled
bowl or (preferably) 9" x 9" glass dish ready for gelatin mixture. Add
agar-agar to boiling water and stir until thoroughly dissolved. (Watch
for burning on bottom.) At this stage, agar-agar will impart
noticeable odor, but it does not carry through to finished dish. Add
evaporated milk and sugar; bring back to boil and boil for 1 minute,
stirring constantly. Add almond extract. Slowly add hot water,
continuing to stir until sugar is completely dissolved. As soon as
mixture returns to boil, turn off heat. Pour mixture into bowl for
setting. When it has cooled slightly, cover and refrigerate for at
least 2 hours. Turn jellied mixture out onto flat plate, then cut it
in 1" squares. Place squares in individ- ual serving bowls with
Mandarin orange wedges and their juice. Cover and return to
refrigerator until ready to serve. From Gemini's MASSIVE MealMaster
