      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

  1. Place Olive Oil in a tall glass and place in the freezer for 30mins.

  2. Place balsamic vinegar and agar agar powder in TM Bowl and mix for 3 min/80deg/Speed 1. Remove the olive oil from the freezer.

  3. While the mixture is still hot pour into a plastic syringe and slowly drip the mixture into the olive oil. Drip from a height of about 5cm and with the syringe vertical to ensure round pearls.

  4. The pearls will sink to the bottom. To recover them pour olive oil through a sieve gently.



These are impressive served on top of a salad or even served on top of strawberries.

If the mixture cools down it will thicken so ensure the temperature stays around 70-80 degress.

You can use any size syringe you like. The bigger the syringe the larger the pearls. I usually use a 10mL syringe from the chemist.
