I just followed the basic recipe in the first post. The first time around, I boiled them way too long and could absolutely not get them through my mesh strainer. Second time around, I timed it. I boiled them for exactly 2 min 30 seconds (from the time they started boiling). I know everyone's timing will be different, but just throwing a basic guideline out there for any newbies like me!
only 2 mins 30 seconds?! Geez! It took mine 7 minutes to get gel-like. Stupid electric glass top stove!
