Pour the juice into a small saucepan and add the salt. Sprinkle the agar-agar flakes on top. Heat without stirring and then simmer for 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally until the flakes dissolve.
Place the fruit in whatever moulds you have chosen. Pour over the hot liquid, allow to cool and then place in the refrigerator to set.
Note: soft fruits such as berries, cherries, peaches or melons do not need to be cooked with agar- agar. However, firmer fruits such as apples or pears need to be peeled, chopped and cooked in the agar- agar and juice mixture to soften them.
- Agar flakes are sold in many supermarkets, they are a natural gelatine made from dried seaweed.
