2 cups extra-virgin olive oil
1 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon agar-agar
Place a jar of olive oil in the freezer and allow to chill for about 45 minutes.
Boil vinegar, sugar and agar-agar. Allow to simmer for a few minutes.
Let cool to 55°C/130°F.
Place vinegar in a dropper and drip in single droplets into chilled olive oil, creating pearls.
