Molecular Gastronomy – Emulsions Shriek hemp butter
By Chef Tali Clavijo
So today I decided I wanted to experiment with converting liquid oils into solids. How was I going to preform this experiment? Well, I decided to use the monoglyceride flakes from the ‘Texturas” line called Glice. These flakes are obtained from glycerin and fatty acids. Similar to oil, it must be broken down with a fatty element and then allowed to emulsify.
The monoglyceride flakes look like this
For this recipe I simply measured about 100ml of hemp oil and 6g of Glice
After I measure out my ingredients I simply combined them in a saucepan
and warmed up the oil until the monoglyceride flakes completely dissolved into the oil. This happens at around 65ºC. Your new mixture should look like this
Next, I transferred my mixture to a different container and placed it in a bath with ice stirring constantly until the oil begins to take body.
Once the oil began to take form, I stuck it in the fridge for about 12hours, or until it acquires a texture that can be worked with the spatula.
The final hemp butter could be used as a spread and tastes amazing!
look at how it spreads…totally transformational!
