Here is a great festive holiday dessert. Kanten is the vegan version of jell-o (which is made with gelatin- a product that comes from the collagen inside the skin and bones of animals such as cows and horses). Ours is thickened with agar flakes, a gelatin made from wild sea vegetables.
Place 2 cups of fruit juice in a saucepan on medium heat. We like grape or berry juice.
Cook until juice begins to simmer.
Whisk in 2 Tbl. of agar flakes and continue whisking until agar dissolves, approximately 5 minutes.
Remove from heat,
add 1 cup of berries such as cranberries and 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts or pecans, a pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg and cardamom.
Pour into a medium bowl or shaped molds and refrigerate until chilled and solid, approximately 2 hours.
