    I used gelatin instead of agar-agar and failed. When putting to water caviar lost the form :(

    Hi there! Sorry to hear that you've been experiencing problems with this. This recipe was specifically designed to be made using agar-agar, so we definitely recommend you use that. Also, make sure to refrigerate the olive oil for 30 minutes before dripping the port preparation preparation in it, and be sure to use a tall glass to allow the gelification process to occur before the droplets touch the bottom of the glass. Good luck!
