For anyone interested the basic procedure is:
- Take a cup full of dried soybeans and soak them overnight.
- Let the soy milk cool till exactly (or approximately in my case) 75 degrees then add a couple of tablespoons of a special salt brine that curdles the soy milk. Stir it then leave it for about 5 minutes.
We had another day of quite heavy snow today so it was a nice activity to do with the children. Tomorrow we are going to try using black soybeans..... the joys of living in the countryside of Japan never cease!
