Cardiac jelly

  • 1/2 bottle of red wine
  • Sugar to taste
  • ~1/2 cup cold water
  • ~100g Agar agar

Reduce the wine with sugar on medium heat until it becomes a viscous syrup (it will take about an hour). In another pan mix water and agar agar (or gelatine). Slowly heat up the mixture and add the wine reduction while stirring. Continue stirring and cook for about 10 minutes on low heat. Let cool for a few minutes, then pour warm jelly into candy form (or make jelly-drops by spooning the mixture onto baking paper). Chill or freeze overnight.
