when you dont have it, you really want it. while at america's we had liquid nitrogen readily available, but i didnt have any use for it. now i have an idea that requires liquid nitrogen, but i dont have it.
i believe alex and rick first played around with foams and liquid nitrogen. they would fill balloons with a siphon charged with no2 cartridges. then they would spin the balloons in liquid nitrogen to quickly freeze the foam. [if you recall, homaro cantu used this technique on his iron chef battle]. the result is a hollow orb.
what would happen if i filled a balloon with my siphon pisco sour and spinned it in liquid nitrogen? a hollow orb?
i predict the result would be a hollow orb. what then when i let it rest and thaw in the freezer? the alcohol would thaw, but the eggwhite and the syrup would remain frozen. where would the alcohol go? will it fill the hollow orb? will the end result be a crispy orb with a liquid center? how would it taste? my idea is to make pisco sour pop 'ems. a frozen orb of crispy "meringue" filled with pisco.
will it work?
dammit! where is the liquid nitrogen when i need it!
