I have all the necessary reagents and I'd like to try to make pineapple caviar or spheres for a dinner party.
I found a recipe online:
Mix 2 gm alginate in 100 gm water using an immersion blender. Add 150 gm pineapple juice.
Make a bath of 2.5 mg calcium chloride.
I'm skeptical about this because I'm pretty sure pineapple will be acidic and I thought that algin-CaCl2 doesn't work in at low pH.
Any idea how much sodium citrate to add?
I plan to make fresh pineapple juice...no canned stuff.
