You Will Need
- Pressure cooker
- Dry ice
- Plastic bottle (optional)
Cut up fruit
Cut up hard fruits such as apples, oranges, and grapes -- these store carbon dioxide best.
Add dry ice
Add a small handful of dry ice to the bottom of the pressure cooker. Remember that dry ice is extremely cold and can burn your skin -- use gloves when handling.
Add fruit to pressure cooker
Pile the fruit on the insert tray and lower it into the pressure cooker, making sure there is room enough from the carbon dioxide gas to flow around the fruit.
Seal pressure cooker
Seal the pressure cooker and let it sit for about 30 minutes to an hour. The pressure-release valve of a pressure cooker will make the process safer.
Remove fruit and enjoy
Remove your carbonated fruit, toss the dry ice, and enjoy it as a light snack, or add it to fruit juice and other drinks for a splash of fizzy fun.
