At Play in the Culinary Sandbox

One of the pleasures of teaching at a culinary institute is the ability to play with toys - equipment that is usually not available to the average Joe.  Here are pictures of various purees spun @ 8,000 RPM.  The duration is 30 minutes to 120 minutes.  Playing in the culinary sandbox...

 The Centrifuge Settings
 Beet - probably my favorite...
 Cooking the beets in a water bath @ 85 degrees C.
 A loaded centrifuge - a beautiful thing...

See and taste the finalized products to be used in the Boulder Country Dinner.  Peace.
