  • Stir all dry ingredients (Gellan and Xanthan) well so that you don't end up with lumps in your gel.
  • Mix beetroot juice and balsamic vinegar together in a heavy-bottomed saucepan. Mix in the dry ingredients with the beetroot/balsamic juice and with a whisk, bring to the boil while stirring. Remove the pan from the heat as soon as it boils.
  • Pour the gel into a wide container so that it solidifies faster. Allow the gel to cool completely, this will take about 20 minutes. You must be able to turn the container of gel upside down without the gel running out…
  • Put the gel in a high measuring cup and mix the blocks of hard gel into a soft gel with the hand blender (or use a regular blender)
  • Add to piping bag and store for use
