Pecan Oil


January 14, 2009 by seanbrock


something I have been tinkering around with for a while

for some reason manipulating fats feels rewarding

here we wanted to create a gummi bear texture with a fat

now that we have it all figured out we can use any fat imaginable

this will be rolled in nitro pecan dust

ingredients used:






pecan oil (jean marc)

propylene glycol alginate

cellulose gum


wondering if pectin would be a better substitute for gelatin

    Propylene glycol alginate? Great, another one for me to track down.

    That finished product looks amazing. I’m not going to ask about proportions, but what is the general procedure?

  2. I was looking ideas on a method to make a spreadable olive oil “butter” just last night… and this came up in my research: (perhaps it could help/serve as a further reference point?)

    Check the Khymos hydrocolloid recipe collection.
    There is a recipe from Paco Rancero for olive oil gummy bears…

    Hey Chef, have you tried working with agar agar? it has a kind of unique texture and i think it would do nice with pecan flavor.

    I really want the recipe for this, or if you have a standard ratios that would be evn better. thanks
