- ¼ cup and 2 tablespoons of fruit juice measure separately
- 1 tablespoon of gelatin unflavored
- 2 cups vegetable oil
- Cold water
All the ingredients ready? Let's begin!
Fill a mason jar or tall container with 2 cups of vegetable oil.
Put the oil in the refrigerator for a minimum of 4 hours or as much as overnight (it is important to ensure that your oil is cold enough to form a sphere).
Pour 2 tablespoons of the fruit juice into the bowl. Using 1 tablespoon of the unflavored gelatin, drop small portions into the fruit juice. Stir until there aren’t any visible lumps.
In a separate container, pour ¼ cup of the fruit juice. Then, pop it in the microwave for about 30 seconds or until it starts steaming.
Combine the gelatin and juice mixture with ¼ cup of juice. Mix until the gelatin has completely dissolved.
In a squeeze bottle, pour the mixture and then transfer it to the refrigerator for 10 minutes to let it cool. You may also use a bowl instead of a squeeze bottle if you prefer.
Please note that you should set your timer for 10 minutes and remove the mixture from the fridge when ready. If you wait too long, the mixture will get too thick and become unusable.
Fill a large bowl about halfway with ice cubes. Remove the oil from the refrigerator and put it in a bowl with ice cubes.
Put more ice around the oil container to ensure that the oil stays cold when the sphere is formed. If you are using a squeeze bottle, gently squeeze the bottle and watch the droplets fall into the oil. They should form a sphere and sink to the bottom. If you use a dropper, suck out some of the gelatin liquid in the bowl and then drop a small drop into the oil.
To make a larger sphere, continue to drop the liquid in the same position. Continue until you have used up all the gelatin liquid.
Pour the oil and balls into a fine mesh strainer set on the top of another bowl. If you want, you can save oil. Rinse the ball in the filter with cold water to wash off the oil.
