Nitrogenated Watermelon Gelee

21 07 2011

Yes Gelee…. not jelly. Why? Because modern cooking deserves trendy, modern lingo.  When using Gelatin, if you’re not making jello shots… class-it-up a bit and make it a gelee!

I had quite a bit of watermelon left over after experimenting with my watermelon carbonation and infusions, so I decided to try making something else new…  a Nitrogenated Watermelon Gelee.

Ingredients:

  • Half of a watermelon
  • 1 Lime
  • 1 tablespoon superfine white sugar
  • 3 grams gelatin powder
  • 1 Nitrogen charger

Directions:

  • Scoop out on half of the watermelon, and blend the fruit with the juice of 1 lime, the gelatin powder and sugar, until completely liquified.
  • Strain through a fine strainer, and pour into iSi Whip canister until liquid reaches the max limit line.
  • Screw on the nitrogen charger and shake well.
  • Store on its side in the fridge for 1 hour. Shake again before your serve.

Conclusion: Presentation is key! As great as it tastes, serving in the empty watermelon rind or some sort of other create plating will really make the difference between a delicious dish and a memorable dish.
