this is cool. You see it a lot in kids candy from japan, where you prepare the water using pre given packets and then use a tool to put little drops in the water that become like jelly with liquid in them. it’s cute

dazzerstar says:

Well guess what for those of you who have not done this technique. it does look good but the natural flavour of the liquid is tainted by the sodium alginate bath and the flavour diminishes rapidly

If Neal Stephenson writes a book about molecular gastronomy I’m not going to be happy…. But I’m still gonna read it.
