Agar is natural gelatin and is used as replacement for pectin in jams. The one I have used is powdered.

When making jam or jelly with it, it is important to boil it for several minutes. Also, people add some to thick sauces, stewed vegetables and soups, even ice-creams. I must emphasize that these ingredients below made an refreshing jam. Lemon has a great deal to do with it. Also, when filling hot jars with hot jam, my grandmother was putting the metal part of knife inside the jar so the jam slides into it and avoid glass breaking is avoided due to heat exposure. I do it the same way. None was broken ever to me. So far. Interesting, isn’t it ?
Madeleines, since made with butter and lemon juice and zest, are a perfect match to this jam.
