Method for Prickly Pear Gel:

1. In a sauce pot over medium to high heat combine all the ingredients together with a whisk, using a spatula scrape the sides while the liquid is cooking to catch all the agar. Once the mixture comes to a boil, whisk for two or more minutes to allow the agar to bloom.

2. Transfer the liquid to the refrigerator to cool. Once the mixture has obtained a jelly-like consistency, using a mixer or blender, blend until smooth. Use a pastry bag to apply or simply pour in layers.
