DIRECTIONS: To make a one cup block of product, fill a microwavable container with one cup of water and add one tablespoon of premix Stir until blended. Microwave until it begins to boil (2 to 3 minutes typical). Alternatively, you can heat in suitable container on stove until it simmers. Then remove container, quickly stir again to thoroughly mix, and let sit until cool. The product can then be cut into cubes, or used as a whole slab. Whatever is not used immediately can be stored in the refrigerator for several months. If long term storage is required, it can be frozen. You can use more or less water to increase or reduce gel firmness. 1/2 tablespoon per cup should be sufficient for most uses and extend economy.
