Agar agar is a natural alternative to the jellies you find in packets at the supermarket. It's also vegetable based. We use it a lot in our desserts in Asia :-) yum! Anyway, I thought it is a good alternative to using gelatin when making jelly Easter eggs. I won't be making them this year cos we're going on hols but here's a pic I found from Chef at Home:

Here's what you do. You might want to start collecting in advance though :-)
a) When you're using eggs for cooking, poke a hole about the size of your pinky with a needle.
b) Drain the contents; cook eggs!
c) Prepare agar agar as instructions on the packet. Pour into empty egg shells.
d) Place agar agar eggs into fridge on the egg tray (hole side up!)
e) Refrigerate overnight
Here's a pic of my friend's eggs. She added colouring and refrigerated EACH layer!!
