How are spherifications made?
The process of creating spherifications with liquid interior that is applied to our Spherika flavor pearls is a surprising fusion of science and culinary art. The technique is based on transforming the outer layer of a liquid into a gel, obtaining spheres that maintain their liquid interior.
It begins with the preparation of a base mixture, which can be any flavored liquid, such as fruit juices, broths, or even wine and spirits with calcium added. The mixture must rest to lose air and be very cold.
Then, the alginate, a derivative of seaweed, is mixed with water to obtain the bath, which must be very cold.
The next step is the spherification technique, in which the base mixture is dropped drop by drop into the alginate bath. This is where the magic happens: the alginate in the bath reacts with the calcium in the base mix, forming a thin membrane that encapsulates the liquid inside.
For direct spherification, with a creamy interior like our herring Spherika pearls, the process is almost the same, but the base is mixed with alginate and the bath is mixed with calcium.
Both processes allow us to obtain the characteristic spheres full of flavor that are a sublime experience for all the senses. So dare to experiment and add a touch of spherical magic to your dishes!
