apple juice caviars...


Making fruit juice caviar is not as complicated as you think. All you have to do is having the right ingredients and tools. I normally make my own fruit juice by using fresh fruit. This way, I have more control over the flavor, color and sugar. However, you can use fruit juice from the market too.


Ingredients:
1
- 250 g 100% apple juice
- 2 g sodium alginate
- 500 g water
- 2.5 g calcium chloride
- 250 g water or apple juice

1

Preparation:

1. Making the bath by dissolve the chloride in the water.
2. Blend the juice and alginate together with immersion blender.
3. Draw into a syringe.
4. Drop the mixture into the bath drop by drop.
5. Remove after one minute and rinse in water or apple juice.

These look amazing! Can you get sodium alginate and calcium chloride in supermarkets? I've never heard or used them before, but I'd like to try after I saw your recipe...

Cool!! Brilynn.

Thanks, Elissa. You will definitely taste the apple juice, but in another form and texture. The texture is kind of gelee. The flavor will depend on how you process the raw ingredient.

Nine, I'm not sure you can get the ingredients in BKK though. You may order them online from http://www.le-sanctuaire.com/

Thanks, HL.

Hi bonbini, my caviars cannot form into balls when i drop into the bath, why that happen?
I had using immersion blender, but how long and what kind of texture will it do after it blended?

thx
cheers andra

What kind of juice did you use? Did you follow the instruction?

Try to add a bit more of sodium alginate and blend for a minute, then let it set for a couple minutes. The texture will thicken and can hold its shape when you drop it into the setting bath.
