Strawberries and Cream Verrine – Experiment Three

Like a bonus track on an already amazing album, I’m back with a final installment of agar agar day. I wanted to wrap up this epic (and strange) meal with something sweet.. so I first thought – chocolate pasta!!@#!  and then I was like, meh.. that’s a little predictable for dessert and I don’t wanna do 3 different gel spaghettis.

Instead I decided on straweberry verrines (it’s a gelatiny, moussey type thing).

I cut up a pint of strawberries, put them in a bowl with 3 tablespoons sugar (these were..  not sweet in the slightest, hense sugar overdose) and a tablespoon of vanilla. Again, I broke out the handy immersion blender and pureed it all until it was mostly juice. I strained it slightly to get any left over big chunks out.

I put the mixture on the stove to boil with 2 grams of agar agar. I whisked it periodically until it boiled, then took it off the heat. I poured it into some glasses immediately and refrigerated.
