  12. Thank you, this looks absolutely sumptuous! How much konnyaku and malic acid? sorry, unfamiliar with using these so don't want to experiment too much, no instinctual 'feel' for it. Hhave used agar agar before. Also when recipes say 'a packet', it's a bit vague, because the internet is a world wide resource, with many products available in different locations- better to use measurable quantities. ( a very American trait, I think they forget there are other nations and peoples in the world) But thank you I can't wait to try. (also thanks for anonymous option, I guard my internet privacy somewhat zealously)

    1. When we buy the Konnyaku jelly powder, it comes in a packet. Then follow the instructions at the back of the packet. You can hop over to this post to check out how the packet looks like. Hope this helps and thanks for dropping by my blog.
