Dissolving gelee

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Is it possible to make a gelee that will dissolve in a hot liquid like soup or sauce. I know agar agar needs minimum of 90 C to dissolve which wouldn't work seeing as that would be way to hot to serve.

It is definitley possible because if you think about it loosely, demi glace is basically a gelee. What type of gelee and for what purpose?

Only the smart ones are doing it while they are still alive.

A solid piece of jellie. Exactly what agar agar does but that an be dissolved in a hot liquid. Not a glaze or thick liquid.
I want to make a lime jellie, cutting into small cubes so when I pour the broth into the soup the cubes will eventually dissolve.
I use agar agar a lot but I know it needs alomost boiling liquid to dissolve. I could try seeing if the smaller pieces would dissolve at a lower temp.

Why not use gelatin?

Doesn't it have the same melting point? Never used gelatin since I've always had agar agar at hand. Just might work. I'll have to try it

About 95F for gelatin as opposed to 185F agar agar.
