In a world where it seems like you can deep fry anything, some guy just deep fried water. Proving, that you can, in fact, deep fry anything.
By combining water with the gelatinous calcium alginate in a a feat of molecular gastronomy,, Jonathan Marcus successfully deep fried water. And there's video to prove it.
Basically, he takes the jelly-like water ball and very gently covers it in flour, egg, and panko crumbs Then, of course, he puts his water in the deep fryer.
On the first attempt, he's done it! He's deep fried water, which is surely a sign of the apocalypse. After taste-testing the creation, he proclaims, 'That is the blandest fried thing I’ve ever tasted." Yep, that's because it's deep-fried water.
It's official: You've seen everything.
