Soak the gelatin in about 1 cup of milk.
Add the remaining milk to a pot, add the kanten, and turn on the heat. The amount of bubbles will increase when boiled, so use a big pot.
Bring it to a boil while taking care not to let it burn, and dissolve the kanten. Turn off the heat after bringing it to a boil, and stir well for approximately 2 minutes.
Remove it from the burner, add sugar, and dissolve. I like to exchange my stirring utensil with a thermometer.
Add the gelatin once it drops from 160-150F / 70-65, stir well, and dissolve it completely. Make sure not to let it cool too much.
Pour into your favorite mold, chill in the fridge, and it is done.
You can use honey or artificial sugar in place of the sugar; you can use whatever you like. But please do not use sugar cane.
