Fun with gelatin


I saw a technique many years ago (in Mexico) that consisted in injecting a non-gelled (liquid ) gelatin into a set piece of gelatin. That technique was used to create very elaborate gelatin flowers. It is quite the thing to look at, but I am not sure I'd be into it. It is almost as ridiculous as gum paste flowers which serve no purpose in life and are a labor cost nightmare. But the principle of this method stuck with me and up until this time I had yet to test it. The video shows a clear square of wormwood gelee being injected with a molasses gelee. It's a rather large piece which I would never use for a single portion but it can be cut into smaller pieces and used to garnish a dessert.
