  • 1 small packet arrowroot
  • 1 pinch turmeric

Method

Pear jelly

  1. Bring the apple juice to the boil with the salt, then add the agar agar and pear strips.

  2. Transfer cashews to the blender and add 2 tbsp of rice milk and the same of rice syrup. Blend until it becomes a smooth thick cream. If the mixture is too thick add more rice milk. 
  3. Taste the cream and add more rice syrup if required.

To assemble

  1. Layer the broken cookies and blueberries at the bottom of a flat serving dish.
  2. Pour jelly mixture over the blueberries and biscuits and allow to cool until set.
