Thanksgiving and Christmas Favorite
Apple juice or apple cider
1/3 cp. + 2 TB. agar flakes (also called kanten flakes)
Kuzu or arrowroot (to thicken)
cups cranberries, rinsed
roasted chopped walnuts
tsp. pure vanilla extract
Grated rind of one lemon
raisins or currants (optional)
orange--grate the rind, then juice the orange
tsp. cinnamon or 1 cinnamon stick
Pour juice into a saucepan and add cranberries, sea
salt, and agar flakes. Bring to a boil; turn down heat and simmer,
stirring constantly until agar flakes are dissolved. If the flakes
do not dissolve, this dish will not gel.
Add raisins or currants, orange rind and orange juice
and simmer covered 10-15 minutes. Stir walnuts, cinnamon and maple
syrup in the pan. Dissolve one heaping teaspoon kuzu in a small
amount of cool water and stir in the mixture, stirring constantly
for 3-5 minutes. This helps to thicken the cranberry mixture.
Alternatively you could use arrowroot but may have to add a little
more sweetener if you use arrowroot.
Place apples in a shallow serving dish and pour the
cranberry mixture over the apples. Allow to cool to room temperature
then refrigerate. You can refrigerate as soon as it stops streaming.
You can pour the
mixture into a Jell-O mold and refrigerate at lease a few hours

product. The medicinal purposes of agar are varied. It
benefits the lungs, reduces inflammations and heat conditions
affecting the heart and lungs; it is soothing to the digestive tract
and mildly laxative; it promotes
good digestion and weight loss, treats hemorrhoids; and carries
toxic and radioactive waste out of the body.
It is superior to gelatin since it doesn't easily
melt and has a firmer texture.
Light Lemon Pie and
Vegan Jello are also made with agar flakes.
