SCIENCE WITH FOOD!!! Making Maple Syrup Pearls

Culinary Arts 2 students dabbled in molecular gastronomy combining Sodium Alginate with a liquid of their choice and then dropping the heated mixture into a Calcium Chloride solution. Over 2 days, varying droplets and "creations" were based off orange soda, Mountain Dew, beef gravy, and our favorite and most flavorful- MAPLE SYRUP (recipe with instructions)
