After my first try at agar agar 'delights' I was left unsatisfied by the texture- yes they were delicious but they were missing something- I did a little experimenting and I think you'll find these are much closer to the original (and rosewater flavour!)

I adore the assertive flavor of ginger, but it’s also very good for you: ginger is reputed to remedy digestive issues including stomach upset and nausea.
