Intro: Molecular Gastronomy: Bacon Infused Agar Spaghetti
In this Instructables we will make a bacon infused agar agar spaghetti dish.
Its science and bacon for dinner, what more could you want?
Lets get started...
-3 Strips Bacon
-3g Agar Agar
-1/4" OD Tubing
Step 1: Get Cooking!
Fry up your pieces bacon until brown and crispy.
While the bacon is cooking, measure 200g Water, and 3.2g Agar Agar
(I found my Agar Agar at my local Asian Market, if it is not available in your area, it can be found at many online stores)
Step 2: Mix Up Em' All Up
Take your bacon strips, 200g water, 3.2g Agar Agar, a pinch of salt, and a tablespoon of Maple Syrup,
and put them all into your Food Processor, and pulse until the bacon has liquified.
Step 3: Boil It Up
Take the bacon mixture, and pour into a pot over high heat. Stir until it reaches a boil.
I admit, this "bacon smoothie" does not look very appetizing now, but it all gets better in the next few steps
Step 4: Make the Noodles!
This step is when the noodles get made!
A process so strange, its almost like magic
Heres what you do:
-Using your syringe, draw up some of the warm mixture.
-Insert the tubing onto the syringe and push the liquid inside.
-Take the tubing off the syringe, and place into the ice water bath, and let sit for a minute.
-Put the syringe back onto the tubing once the liquid has chilled, and press air into it, to "shoot" the noodle out.
Wah-lah, there you have it. A delicious, single bacon noodle
Step 5: Time to Eat
Once you have made all your noodles, it's plate them up and eat em'.
Serving suggestion: Coat with maple syrup, and sprinkle with salt.
