The two main sugars are fructose and glucose.
So my first molecular cuisine experiment involved honey - Honey sheets!
Ingredients are simple:
1/2 cup Honey
1/2 cup water
I package agar agar
Fruit to wrap
Agar agar is a wonderful gelling product - it is made from the mucilage (the gooey stuff that oozes out) of a seaweed. It also has no calories and is high in fibre. It gels a bit stronger than gelatin so is useful in some recipes. Some people use it to help dieting by eating less - eating a food with agar agar in it before a meal will make you feel fuller faster.
Recipe instructions (from the Molecule-R DVD):
Boil up the water, honey and agar agar powder. Then pour a small amount on a plate (like making a pancake) spread it evenly and then refrigerate it for 15 minutes. You can then cut out a round shape on the plate and even pick it up!
Wrap your favourite fruits and enjoy! The agar agar is tasteless so the gel only tastes like honey -yummm...
