agar-agar vs. Knox Gelatin

chowchowchow | Sep 2, 2006 04:25 PM

I've seen agar-agar translucent strands in the local Asian market. Sometime ago, I was told that it can be a vegetarian substitute for Knox unflavored Gelatin (made from ground animal hooves?)

Does anyone know how to use agar-agar? The instructions in the wrapper usually says 1 pkg with 60 bowls of water (20 pounds.) I'd like to see oz & cups.
