SAN FRANCISCO, May 26 (UPI) -- A Massachusetts man revealed the method he used to create "deep fried water" for a "terrible ideas" hackathon event in San Francisco.
Jonathan Marcus posted a video to YouTube showing his first successful attempt at creating "deep fried water" for an event dubbed "The San Francisco Stupid [expletive] No One Needs and Terrible Ideas Hackathon," which took place May 14-15.
Marcus said in the video's description he used a process called frozen reverse spherification to create a calcium alginate membrane around a ball-shaped serving of water before rolling it in flour, eggs and breadcrumbs for deep-frying.
Marcus cuts through the fried ball and water runs out before he samples his creation.
"That is the blandest fried thing I've ever tasted," he says in the video.
The uploader wrote in the video's description that copycats should use caution.
"WARNING: This is potentially very dangerous. If water leaks out while the sphere is frying in hot oil, it may explode sending scalding oil everywhere. Do not attempt without proper safety precautions. Do not consume until cooled down or you may get burned. Also they don't taste particularly good. You have been warned."
