FSG preservative
Ok, don't throw things at me. I can't find a lot of specific definitive info on fail proof preservatives.

I love FSG, but the refrigeration thing is the pits sometimes. Especially when traveling.

Can anyone tell me about preserving my FSG so it can be left out?

This is from the okra gel thread, but it applies here! Thought I'd throw in the recipe too, lol.

" I have made couple successful batches so far with recipe as follows: 2 tblsp of Marshmallow root with 4c of distilled water and 1 full cup of horizontal sliced okra. Low boil for 30-40mins. This yield 2cups of okra gel. I then add kathymack' s portions for the preservatives and 1/4+1/8tsp of agave nectar, 1/4tsp mag flakes, 1/2 tsp of sucragel. Too chicken to try grapeseed"

A few of the preservatives you can use are potassium sorbate, Germall, or Optiphen. Available here:
