    Where are you people buying your agar? Lol. I bought a package at an expensive health food store that will do this recipe twice with some leftover and it certainly didn't cost me $48. I used organic apple juice for the liquid. I will say there's no way I can get this into a loaf pan; it was too much for a 9x9 pan, too. I had to put it all in a 9x13 pan. My son really likes it and I love that I don't have to use that nasty Jello stuff with all of its artificial ingredients and sweeteners. TY!
