Fruit Juice Caviar


Pour oil into a tall glass and chill (the oil must be cold).
In a very small saucepan bring juice and agar agar to a boil. Reduce to gentle simmer and cook 1-2 minutes, or until agar agar is dissolved.
Let cool 3-5 minutes.
Fill an oral syringe or a straw with the juice. Drop, one drop at a time, into the cold oil. Little caviar orbs will form on contact with the cold oil and fall to the bottom.
Strain caviar using a fine mesh strainer. Rinse well with water.
Store caviar in water until ready to use.
Lay on a paper towel-lined plate and pat dry.
