Gelatine of Virgin olive Oil

(prepared in the Thermomix)

 

 

 

 

 

Ingredients for about 550 g Gelatine:

 

170 g Sugar

120 g Water

25 g Glucose

4 Gelatine sheets (keep them already soake in cold water)

 

250g Virgin Olive Oil (on normal room temperature)

 

Preparation:

 

  • Prepare for a syrup of the sugar, water and glucose.

  • Add the soaked gelatine.

  • Don´t boil the syrup again after adding the Gelatine sheets in to it.

  • Fill in the syrup into the Thermomix and start running it on N° 4-5.

  • Build up an Emulsion adding one by one, drizzling the olive oil like you would make a Mayonaise.

 

The whole process is not difficult, but don´t add the oil to quick,

remind you have to combine 3 elements which are not really good friends

in it´s chemical composition.

 

Once the oil is added, fill your Olive oil Gelatine in a square container,

and let it rest for about 5 hours.
