  • Stir the Mojito and the Calcium Lactate in a bowl until the calcium lactate is completely dissolved.

  • Cut the fresh mint into small strips. Place the mold on a hard surface, such as a cutting board. This way you can easily transport it to the freezer later. Fill the Silicone Half Sphere Mould with the mint leaves.

  • Now fill the Silicone Half Sphere Mould with the mojito-calcium lactate mixture. Place the mold in the freezer for two hours.
  • Fill a tall measuring cup with 600 grams of water and add 3 grams of sodium alginate. Mix the alginate well with the water so that there are no lumps left. Then pour the water-alginate mixture into a container and let it rest for 15 minutes. This will make the air bubbles disappear, which will give a better result later.
    3 gram Sodium Alginate
  • After two hours, get your equipment ready for the final phase of this bizarre recipe:
    – the alginate bath
    – a container of cold, clean tap water
    – a spoon with holes
    – a clean tea towel
    – the frozen mojito dumplings
  • Place the frozen spheres in the alginate bath. The trick now is to move them occasionally with the spoon for the first 30 seconds or so so that they don't freeze to the bottom. However, the spheres must not touch each other, then they will stick together.
    The spheres thaw completely in the alginate bath in about 3 minutes.
  • After 3 minutes, carefully scoop the spheres out of the alginate bath using the Molecular Collecting Spoon and pat them dry with the clean cloth. Now place them in the tap water to rinse off all the alginate. Gently stir the water with the perforated spoon to clean the bulbs completely.
  • Serve and enjoy!

    • Ha Gerda, dank voor je reactie. Dat het membraan wat aan de dikke kant is zou te maken kunnen hebben met de verhoudingen en de omvang van de bol. Zelf proberen we de bollen wat aan de grote kant te maken en soms om het proces van gelvorming te versnellen verwarmen we soms het alginaat bad zodat er weinig van het calcium in contact komt met het sodium en het membraan snel zet. Hopelijk kun je hier iets mee voor een volgende keer. Kijk vooral ook eens naar de Bieten-Balsamico bollen – daar is de inhoud en structuur dichter bij de structuur van het membraan.

      Succes – team Special Ingredients.
