"Noodles" made from agar agar and chocolate (or fruit juice)

Step 0: Acquire Ingredients and Equipment
You will need:

White/Milk Chocolate Spaghetti Ingredients
1g agar agar
3/4 cup water
85g chocolate

Fruit Juice Spaghetti Ingredients
2g agar agar
1/3 cup water
½ cup fruit juice

stove and saucepan (harder to find in a college dorm than you might think)
syringe (make sure it’s food safe – we got a molecular gastronomy kit that included one)
small diameter PVC tubing (something like 0.17”), the more/longer the better

Step 1: Step 1: Mix things together and heat them

Put your ingredients together in the pan and heat them while stirring, bringing them almost to a boil.  If it’s chocolate, be sure not to let it burn while it is melting.
You can go to most any pharmacy and ask for a DOSE SYRINGE and get a &quot;legal&quot; one that you cannot attach a needle to but also has a bigger dose end--these come in sizes too. IF they ask you need 'em for your pets or kids meds. Also TRACTOR SUPPLY sells them--and a surprising range of actual syringes and needles--in the ANIMAL HEALTH section. Even in a NO SYRINGE state like NY!!!!! <br> <br>And--a lot of US States do not have a &quot;No Syringes&quot; policy! IF you can't find them in the drug aisles ask at the counter or the pharmacy. <br> <br>Dose syringes come in quite a few sizes too---They even come in a super hugie special size for &quot;Tube Feeding&quot; and hold quite a lot--maybe 8 oz or so? <br> <br>IF you need to make a &quot;custom size&quot; do as they did in &quot;The Olden Days&quot; and find a wooden dowel just slightly smaller than the tube or piece of pipe you want to use. Wrap the business end with a wrap of yarn or cloth and secure. Dampen to get it to seal if needed. This will allow you to push the mix OUT but will not allow the mix to push back into the tube or pipe. Use this as the &quot;plunger&quot; to force out the mixture.
What is Agar agar? and is it available in the UK?
Agar agar is a chemical produced from a type of seaweed that acts as a vegetarian gelatin substitute. You should be able to buy it online from many places including <a href="http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1/276-6740544-8293543?url=search-alias%3Dkitchen&field-keywords=agar+agar" rel="nofollow">Amazon</a>. This is <a href="http://www.amazon.co.uk/Cuisine-R-EVOLUTION-Molecular-Gastronomy-Kit/dp/B0049P7294/ref=sr_1_3?s=kitchen&ie=UTF8&qid=1353786273&sr=1-3." rel="nofollow">the kit </a>that we use.&nbsp;
You can get syringes at the grocery store. Don't believe me? They are called &quot;Flavor Injectors&quot; and they are in the sauce/marinade area. They are really reusable too.
Just a thought. Take a much longer piece of tubing coil it up in a shallow pan filled with an ice bath let the free end dangle over the side and you should be able to pretty much continuously extrude
This takes jello to a whole other level.
Wow.. this is just beautiful
So Cool! I have seen milk chocolate noodles but never strawberry or white chocolate.
These look so weird and awesome!
