You may have noticed that I'm curious. I always want to know the why and what if.
So yesterday Tyler and I were enjoying some down time - me reading Torreblanca 2, and I began to wonder what effect vibration would have on gelatin setting. Specifically, if I set a pan of gelatin on a vibrating table and allowed it to set at various temperatures and levels of vibration, what would happen. What if I put a blueberry in the gelatin - would it sink, float, do nothing? Would the vibration inhibit setting, slow setting, create cool patterns?
Tyler's response - "Why not just pour part of your gelatin with a blueberry and let it set up, then add the rest of the gelatin?" "That's not the point," I responded.
"Why not just set a blueberry in the bottom and turn it over when its set?" "You're missing the point!" I barked.
I don't really care about the blueberry, I want to know the effect of vibration on gelatin setting. Isn't that good enough a goal in itself? I'm sure I'll be playing around soon.
