[MUSIC] Hi, Wylie Defresne here from WD50. What we're gonna make here is something we call a pineapple scramble. We've taken a pineapple. We've pureed it with a couple cloves. And some sour cream. We've added our nefcu cellulose to it. And we're just going simply put it in the pan, spread it around. We're going to put it over here on the stove for a moment. The nefcu cellulose is going to heat up and its going to gel. You're going to see in a moment we're going to have something that almost resembles a crepe. We're gonna take that, and we're gonna turn it into scrambled eggs. It's a fun little technique, the pineapple scramble. Almost right away, it forms a gel. We can pull it out. At this point, we could even roll it. We could make an omelette if we wanted As long as this stays warm we don't have to worry about it returning it to a liquid phase, and we can use that to our advantage. We've also played around with white foods to make it look like a ricotta. We did an almond ricotta, we did a parsnip ricotta. But it's still a gel that we have. But you can see we've cut it up. And now what we can do is we can keep this warm in this form, but it looks like scrambled eggs, it looks just like scrambled eggs and it's a fun way of playing with the fact that this was at one point a paste, but we can turn it into a solid and have a little bit of fun with it. We've used this crepe like thing to wrap things before, we've served them as mini omelets. The Japanese rolled omelette, we've done that. Now this can go back into the pan, and we can keep it warm over here to the point of service and it won't melt, as long as it stays warm. When someone says pineapple scramble, I think that immediately grabs your attention, well what does that mean, pineapple scramble? And then it comes out and you're thinking, oh I'm having eggs, but I'm really not. I'm really having the flavor of pineapple, clove and a little bit of sour cream. Again something very familiar, but an unfamiliar texture. [MUSIC]
