IMBB #15 - Has my blog jelled?
The latest edition of IMBB is hosted by Elise at Simply Recipe. I made this coconut milk gelatin dessert the same day I made the lemon sherbet tacos. I guess I should have known better than to try to experiment on Friday the 13th. This one at least *looked* the way I pictured it. I don't really have a recipe to post for this at all since I have to play with this three times before I get the consistency that is more edible. The first time, I tried to follow the 6g of agar agar to 120g liquid. That didn't set the coconut milk at all. I melted some more agar agar with water and mixed it in. Then it got really, really hard and dense. Finally, I cutted it up and melted it over the stove. More milk was added to thin the mixture. It is still a bit too hard, but not unpleasantly so. So you see, I have no idea what the measurements ended up to be. =) The bigger problem is the lack of coconut milk flavor after I heated the coconut milk. I could at least list the ingredients if anybody else wanted to try their hand on it. The base liquid is a mixture of coconut milk and milk. Agar agar is used for setting the whole thing. Sugar was added to the desired sweetness level. Diced mango and green/pink colored tapioca cubes (regular tapioca will work, just not as colorful. Cook until clear, rinse and cool before adding to coconut mixture.) are added to provide some different textures and flavor.
