    Can I use agar agar in the place of gelatin? Will I get the same result?

        Oh, by the way, do you know why sometimes jelly candies melt quickly? I tried twice but they literally melted after a few hours. Thanks in advance

      2. Did you make them with agar agar? If yes, so maybe need to check proportions, maybe not enough agar agar in it, because it should not melt. If with gelatin, it will melt. Another question, if you made with gelatine, were candies sour? Like lemon, kiwi candies? Acid rouins gelatine, so pick not sour kind for gelatine.

        I did it with agar agar because I don’t use gelatin. I tried with fresh orange juice. Thanks for the advice, I will try putting a bit more agar agar 🙂

      4. Well, acid does not ruin agar agar, must be proportions, need to play with it) You are welcome.
