Fancy Fruit Caviar

Make caviar from real fruit juice! See, molecular gastronomy is easier than you think.


  • 1 cup chilled vegetable or grapeseed oil
  • 3/4 cup fruit juice of your choice
  • 1/2 teaspoon agar agar powder


  1. In a saucepan, whisk juice and agar agar and boil for 2 minutes. Allow to slightly cool.
  2. Cold oil spherification: transfer to a squeeze bottle and squeeze a one drop at a time into the cold oil. The liquid juice will become juice pearls.
  3. Use a strainer to remove the pearls and rinse with water. You may use immediately, after lightly pat drying them on paper towel, or store them in a sealable container of water in the fridge.
