Suze's notes for this recipe:
Looking over my summer recipes I came across this lovely and delicious fruit terrine. It makes a great presentation for the 4th of July --or any time!

Directions

1
Put one cup of the juice in a saucepan, and sprinkle the agar over it; allow it to soften for a few minutes. Heat on medium-high, stirring, until the agar is completely dissolved and the juice begins to boil.
2
Stir in the remaining juice and the agave (*optional) and remove from heat. Allow the agar mixture to cool slightly while you prepare the fruit. Be sure to stir the juice every minute or so.
3
Remove the stems from the strawberries and slice them lengthwise. Place them on the bottom of a loaf pan, prettiest sides down. Slice the bananas and place them on top of the strawberries. Put the blueberries in an even layer on top of the bananas.
4
Gently pour the juice mixture evenly over the berries. Working quickly, distribute the mixture evenly in pan.
5
Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until completely chilled and jelled.
6
To serve:
Carefully run a knife along the edge of the mold (you may want to lower the pan into a large bowl or sink full of hot tap water for a few seconds to free the mold)
Invert over a platter

Question: Where would you find "agar powder (or gelatin powder)" at in your grocery store?
