deep fried water

deep fried water

water… frozen reverse spherification (calcium alginate membrane)… flour… egg… panko… 375ºF peanut oil

A dozen of these were prepared for and given away at the Stupid Shit No One Needs and Terrible Ideas Hackathon 2.0 …

WARNING: This is potentially very dangerous. If water leaks out while the sphere is frying in hot oil, it may explode sending scalding oil everywhere. Do not attempt without proper safety precautions. Do not consume until cooled down or you may get burned. Also they don't taste particularly good. You have been warned.

    Isn’t the ‘water’ actually that Japanese dew drop stuff? That’s what it
    looks like at first…

    • josh dun says:

      No it’s the edible water bottle

    • Anna says:

      No I don’t think so. The dew drop things are basically just clear and bland
      jello. These are those “edible water bottle” things people were all over
      for a bit I think.

    • Jonathan Marcus says:

      You’re right that they totally look similar! In this case, they are made
      with two different materials. The Japanese raindrop/dewdrop cake is a solid
      agar gel (made from seaweed). The fried water before it’s fried has a
      liquid inside with a thin layer of calcium alginate gel on the outside
      (made from algae).

    This will be some health freaks cheat meal .

    • GrowingDownUnder says:

      i’ve made batter without egg many times before and it works perfectly fine
      if not even better you have a harder & crispier batter…far out how dumb
      can you be?…I know for a fact it works as batter as far as water
      goes…well like I said the calcium holds that in place as you can see from
      the video!

    • Eter Puralis says:

      +GrowingDownUnder I don’t think it’s “the” reason it works, I just think
      it’s one of them. You can’t just haphazardly remove random ingredients from
      an experiment and expect it to have the same result.

    • GrowingDownUnder says:

      Lol if you think the egg is the reason it works than you’re even more
      stupid than you’re making it seem…it’s clearly the calcium alginate
      holding the water not the egg haha

    • Eter Puralis says:

      pff, you think I can afford to send you anything for you to prove your bs
      claims.

      This video proves it works with the egg. You’re the one who states that it
      won’t without it.

    • GrowingDownUnder says:

      calcium alginate holds the water or liquid in place, then no matter what
      you use on the outside for batter you only fry it long enough to cook the
      batter not cook the calcium alginate. So of course it’s practical you seen
      in this video for yourself it works now how would it be any different with
      or without using egg?
