I finally tried making my own flaxseed gel this morning and it was a complete disaster. After the water boiled, I was hoping it would get thicker...but it never did. I stirred it for over thirty minutes! I drained the water and tried again but to no avail. Then this evening, I pumped myself up enough to try another time and I failed yet again. This time, a bit of sticky stuff showed up on the spoon when I scraped the edges but the suspension of seeds in the liquid never happened. I tried for over thirty minutes. I used golden flax seeds bought in bulk for at Whole Foods if that helps explain anything...?
What did I do wrong?!?!
Any words of advice would be greatly appreciated, thank you
