Help with this agar/gelatin technique please

In the Modernist Techniques Forum
Hi

i would like to know if you guys can help me with some advices in order to get this gelatine. This is a dish served at Noma, as you can see in the picture you see this green gelatine, as far as i know it was made of coriander or parsley.

what i know about this gelatine is you need 1 part of purée ( 100 grams), 1 part of agar (1 gram) and 1 gelatine sheets. As we know we need to dissolve the agar on a liquid, but...can we dissolve it straight on the purée in order to keep the deep color ?

i would like to try it with beetroot or carrot pure, any advice are more than welcome

kind regards

Yeah, you should be able to dissolve it directly in the puree, you might have to add some water until it's a good consistency, depending on the liquidity of the vegetable. Things like carrots, beets, and parsley can really hold up their color even if you add a decent amount of water.

I hope this helps some. Thanks and happy cooking!
