Vacuum Seal Liquids with Gelatin for Sous Vide Cooking
Saw a very interesting article on how to vacuum seal marinades, sauces, or other liquids with a normal home vacuum sealer. Normally the liquid will get sucked up into the machine if you try to vacuum seal it. The people at Gothamist came up with an ingenius plan:
To solve this problem, we hit upon the idea of gelling the liquid with gelatin, since gelatin is thermoreversible and melts back into liquid when heated. This turns the liquid into a solid during the vacuum-sealing stage, and back into a liquid during the cooking stage.
You would need a decent amount of time to prep your food but for special dishes it would definitely be a great way to go.
