 Recipes for Kanten 
Japanese Mizoguchi Snow-Dried Kanten

Mitoku Kanten or Agar Agar is a traditional gelatin made in the winter involving a very long procedure from several different varieties of red seaweed. Light and refreshingly cool, natural "jell-o" made with fruit, juice and kanten are especially popular in summer. In any season Kanten can be used with vegetables and stock to make molded aspics. It is used in Japan as an indispensable aid for beauty and health, as it is rich in calcium and iron and loaded with natural iodine!

Uses: Kanten comes prepackaged in bars and flakes. Even without refrigeration, kanten sets quickly as it cools, and seals in the natural flavor and sweetness of any fruits and vegetables used. Light and refreshingly cool, kanten dishes are especially popular in the summer. In any season, kanten can be used with vegetables and stock to make molded aspics; as a substitute for pectin in jams, jellies, and cranberry sauce; and in desserts such as puddings and pie fillings.
