Balsamic Vinegar Pearls


Recommended Posts

So excited to start the Sept Whole 30.  I need it!  But I have a question on a recipe I just found.  I think it's ok, so mainly I wanted to share because it looks like so much fun (and make sure I'm not missing something that would make it non-compliant).  It calls for agar-agar, but I found a couple of threads that said it was ok.

Basically you're making tiny balsamic drops.  Thought it would be fun to put in a salad.  Found it on an @tastemade instagram post.

tastemadeBalsamic Vinegar Pearls
2-3 cups olive oil

⅔ cup balsamic vinegar
2 g agar-agar
3 cups water
Pour olive oil into a pint glass or medium carafe and place into the freezer for 30 minutes.
Heat the balsamic vinegar in a saucepan over medium heat and add agar-agar. Bring to a boil while stirring constantly then immediately remove from heat.
Remove oil from the freezer.
Using a syringe or pipette, draw up the balsamic mixture and begin to slowly drop into the cold olive oil.
Using a spoon, transfer the balsamic pearls to a bowl filled with the water. Give it a good stir to rinse the pearls of the oil. Serve over tomatoes, mozzarella and fresh basil.
