I agree with everyone. That is WAAYY too much oil and agave nectar. I would not use more than a 1/2 tsp of agave nectar per 8oz yield of product and no more than 1/2 tsp total of oil. FSG has great hold on its own, so adding agave nectar is really not required. Kathymack has great starting recipe. I started with hers then tweaked it to make my own. If you find FSG is still not your thing, then give okra gel a try. You use the same ingredients and proportions, and its alot easier. Only thing is that you MUST use a thickening agent like guar gum or xanthum gum(find these in the baking isle) or you wont get the same results.

you can take a look at the thread:So excitied Made a perfect batch of okra gel today
