Strawberries in Bubbles of Snow-Ichigo no awayuki-kan


2 Cups (500 ml) Water
2 ½ tsp Agar-Agar Powder
½ - 2/3 Cup Sugar (I used ½ Cup)
2 Large Egg Whites
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
16-24 Medium or Small Strawberries, washed and hulled

1 Baking Pan (I used brownie pan 13” x 8 ½ “)


Combine water, agar-agar powder, and sugar in a medium size pot. Bring it to a boil and continue to simmer until agar-agar and sugar dissolves.

Using a mixer beat the egg whites until soft peaks form. Add the agar-agar in a fine stream while continuing to beat the egg white, and then mix in the lemon juice. Continue to beat the mixture until light and fluffy. (About 50 seconds)

Moisten the pan with cold water. Spread the egg white mixture evenly and arrange the strawberries, bottom end up, in several rows. Allow the mixture to congeal, uncovered, for about 30 minutes. Then chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 to 3 hours. Cut into squares and serve chilled.
